KHQ - Images from a study that have just been released show the harmful effects that smoking can have on an unborn child. Dr. Nadja Reissland studied thousands of tiny movements on the faces of unborn babies at different stages of pregnancy. Twenty mothers were monitored, 4 of whom smoked an average of 14 cigarettes a day.

Results show that fetuses whose mothers smoked continued to show significantly higher rates of mouth movement and self touching than those with non-smoking mothers. Looking at the images, it almost appears that some of the fetuses whose mothers smoke are grimacing.
