Wales has the highest rate of smoking during pregnancy in the UK, which is putting thousands of babies' lives at risk, health charity Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) Wales has warned.
One third of mums-to-be in Wales smoke at some point during their pregnancy - considerably higher than the UK average, which lies at just over one quarter - exposing 11,864 unborn babies to harm from tobacco each year.
Smoking during pregnancy increases the risk of stillbirth, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or cot death, premature birth, low birth-weight and miscarriage.
Samantha Paul stopped smoking when she was pregnant with her first child, but started again soon after giving birth. When she fell pregnant a second time, she sought help from her midwife to kick the habit and gave up within two days.
The Chief Executive of health charity Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) Wales, Elen de Lacy, says it is a "sad fact" that smoking during pregnancy in Wales continues to be considerably above the UK average.
