Fear of Pregnancy – Tokophobia:Smoking and pregnancy
2013-01-16
Name: Gehna I' m 16 weeks and afraid of everything around me. I fear of inhaling something harmful in the air. Me and my husband do not smoke but people around me do. In my neighbourhood and office, there are people who smoke. I try to stay away but I can' t always avoid it. I' m afraid of any kind of defects and illnesses. I just want a healthy baby,

I also fear harm to my baby due to smoke and pollution. though I stay away from cigarette smoke but pollution is unavoidable. while commuting, I have to inhale a lot smoke and exhaust from vehicle. This worries me a lot. I worry whether my baby would have some defect or not.

Smoking is injurious not only to health of the mother but also to the baby. Its good that you try to avoid the smoke . you can also try to talk to your friends and colleagues not to smoke in your presence. hope this works.
