N.C. Mortality rate for infants who never made it to their 1st birthday increased in 2012 for the second year in a row. Of those deaths, 182 were congenital malformations/deformations/ chromosome abnormalities, 210 died from prematurity or low birth weight…..
Surgeon General’s Warning specifically declares smoking dangerous and a contributor to birth defects, prematurity, and mortality.
There are quit-smoking programs in the community available with tools, resources and incentives to help you make a healthy decision for you and your baby. Contact your local health department for more information!
