New research reveals that smoking mothers can have a great impact on the unborn babies and their development. As a part of the study, the 4-D ultrasound scans show that smoking during pregnancy can affect the baby’s nervous system. The researchers even told that the fetuses whose mothers smoked revealed a much-increased rate of mouth movements in indicating that the Central Nervous System (CNS) controlling those movements did not grow in the same manner as the fetuses of non-smokers.
Scientists at Durham and Lancaster Universities in the UK analysed 80 of the high definition ultrasound scans of around 20 fetuses, gathered at 24 and 36 weeks into the pregnancy period so as to observe their mouth and other movements.
