Re: Doctor recommends smoking?!
Yes. They did with my last pregnancy. It was unplanned and I was going through a lot at the time. I was smoking 2 packs a day and drinking 2-3 pots of coffee a day. My doctor said cut back as you can but quitting can cause more stress on the baby. I did quit, but it took a lot to do. The coffee was hard to kick so I didn't quit that.

Quitting smoking is hard. Tobacco is 10 times more addictive than heroin and the withdrawals are horrid. To put a baby through that is a higher risk than smoking itself. That isn't a free pass however. She should do her best to cut back without going through withdrawals.
