Second Hand Smoke

Cynthia Flynn's picture


Dear Midwife,
I'm about 10 weeks pregnant and my husband and I were out celebrating our friend's birthday. The restaurant was pretty free from smoke during the evening but began to turn into more of a bar environment with more and more smokers as the night progressed. Not to raise any suspicion, since we have not shared the pregnancy news yet, we tried to position ourselves away from any smokers in the room but at the end of the night it was unavoidable. When we felt that the smoke was too much, we left.
