June 2015: Ultrasound scans show how smoking affects unborn babies
The harmful effects of smoking during pregnancy may be seen in the facial movements of unborn babies. When Nadja Reissland et al investigated foetal subtle movements, using 4 D ultrasound scans of smoking and nonsmoking mothers, they found that foetuses of smoking mothers showed a significantly higher rate of mouth movements and self-touch compared to foetuses of nonsmoking mothers. The researchers suggest that the reason for the difference might be that the central nervous system in the foetuses of smoking mothers does not develop in the same manner as in foetuses of mothers who do not smoke during pregnancy (pp. 596-603).
