Does anyone know of a spell that can stop ciggarrettes from causing harm to an unborn fetus from the mother smoking while shes pregnant? Or make the mother stop smoking? I absolutely cannot talk to her about it and her last child had heart problems at birth.
I wont be able to. She has a dr. And unfortunitely i know of many people around here that just had babys that never quit. But their previous kids didnt have to get open heart surgery right out the gate. She says the meds she has to take to live caused it. Common sense says dont have another kid then. They have plenty. But since they are, wouldnt you want to take every precausion you could to ensure the child was healthy? Especialy because of the history?
Depending on her level of addiction and how many cigarettes she smokes a day, it could be more detrimental to the babies health to quit smoking.
While the go to answer for many is to just quit smoking during pregnancies, some doctors will advise that the mother cut down rather than stopping because the stress and symptoms of withdrawal are more harmful to both mother and baby. This isn't a popular response, especially in a society that is working against smoking period, but it does happen and is a case by case basis.
Smoking while pregnant increases risks, it doesn't guarantee them.
All in all, I would say this is a matter between her, her doctor and her family.
On a personal note, I find it appalling that someone, especially a woman, would make the statement of "they have plenty" in regards to how many children a person has and whether or not she should have more.
Maybe i will suggest the e cig to her. Nobody should keep having more kids on purpose who was using birth control for the last 2 and a half years who knows that the medication she needs to take to live can and has (or it couldve been the smoking) cause heart defects to the point of open heart surgery on an infant. Thats not responsible. And i would not advise anyone to do it. Im used to people being appalled at the rights of innocent unborn children. In my opinion this country would be better off if the law was stricter on this.
Regular e-cigs are helpful, however vaping might be more suitable. Vaping allows for more variations in smoking habits. The equipment involves a tank, fluid, atomizer, and a battery which when put together is small, discreet, cheap and easy to keep up with. What makes it so versatile is the fluid. You can get it in over 200 flavors, and a nicotine range from 0mg to 24mg which is suspended in the fluid which is basically vegetable oil. The unit heats the fluid into a steam or mist that you inhale, depending on the position of the atomizer in the unit, the mist can come out cold to warm.
Since many smokers have the hand to mouth and even inhalation stimulation issues this could be the perfect solution. I wish there was a spell that aided in smoking cessation, we could all save a lot of money if it were so. However a spell to increase her inner strength may help.
Personally I have actually smoked a pack a day since I was 12, and quitting is not on my list of desires. But Connie and I have a son, and we both vape inside the home. As of our son's last doctor's appt. our vaping has not had any negative affect on him whatsoever. Then again Connie isn't pregnant or breast feeding so we don't have a worry of getting nicotine directly in our son's system.
I hope this helps, and could be a tasty and cheap alternative to the greater danger to the unborn fetus of your friend.
