Doctor recommends smoking?!

My husband works with a lady who says her doctor RECOMMENDS that she continue to smoke cigarettes and drink Mt. Dew throughout her pregnancy because it would be harder on her and the baby if she quits. Has anyone ever heard of this? I don’t think I believe her!

I don't believe that! If we have to give up deli meat, then I don't see why someone would be able to still smoke.

It saddens me to think that someone is so addicted to something that they refuse to hear the truth.

I have never heard of something like this and I have a hard time believing it is the truth.

It makes me wonder if she is saying this to others as an excuse so they don't judge her when seeing her drink Mountain Dew and smoke while pregnant.

I've never heard them recommend smoking but they will tell you if you are smoking now you need to slowly quit and set a date because it can harm the baby.

They recommend that you quit but don't just quit on the spot you have to slowly quit. I've never heard them say continue to smoke.
