Title: Pregnancy and Vaping


1
Pregnancy and Vaping
As someone who is about to become a mother, you
will make it a point to do anything and
everything when it comes to protecting your
little one. This means that if you are someone
who was smoking before you conceived the baby,
you might have made the switch to vaping since
you have heard that they are harmless. If you are
a non smoker who is around people that smoke, you
might have been wondering whether the secondhand
smoke from vapes and electronic cigarette kits
will affect your baby in any way. There are a lot
of questions that still need to be answered about
pregnancy and vaping. Here is a look at what
expecting mothers need to know about the matter.

What Are Vapes? Vapes, e-cigarettes, vape pens
these things come in various shapes and sizes.
They are all essentially devices which deliver
the nicotine in an aerosol (vapour) form.
Conventional cigarettes deliver the nicotine
through a process of burning the tobacco and you
inhaling the smoke from it. This difference
between them is why it is called vaping instead
of smoking. The vaping liquid can either be
flavoured or unflavoured and it can come in
varying levels of nicotine. This is the reason
why a lot of people trying to stop smoking
believe that vaping allows them to gradually
lower the level of nicotine intake until they
come to a point where they can give it up
completely. Is Vaping Safer Than
Cigarettes There has always been a lot of debate
on the matter. Vaping is relatively a lot newer
and while a lot of extensive research has been
done about whether or not vaping is safer for the
health than traditional cigarettes in general,
nobody is willing to willingly put an expecting
mother in harms way just for the sake of
conducting research. Another factor coming into
the mix is that there are hundreds of different
brands of e-cigarettes which come with their own
e-liquids. The US Food and Drug Administration
has only recently started to regulate the
e-liquids and the ingredients being used in them.
There is still a need to determine whether vaping
is really harmful and if it is harmful, the
extent to which it is also needs more research.

If you are simply comparing tobacco smoking and
vaping the facts are obvious. Tobacco smoking
delivers a mix of over 1000 chemicals to the body
and that is a well known fact based on years of
research. Vaping, on the other hand, is
definitely delivering fewer toxins and chemicals.
This is because the process of vaping involves
heating of the liquid and delivering the nicotine
through vapours instead of smoke. Vaping And
Pregnancy Everybody knows for a fact that
smoking during your pregnancy is definitely going
to affect your babys health adversely. That
being said, there is no definitive proof to
support that vaping during pregnancy is
completely harmless for the child you have on the
way. We understand that smoking is not something
that you can just give up overnight but when it
comes to the health of your baby, it can be
crucial. Pregnancy and vaping becomes a matter of
choosing the lesser evil for those that are
addicted to nicotine. Yes, if you absolutely must
have some nicotine intake due to an addiction to
cigarettes, vaping will be a better option than
smoking a traditional cigarette. The
recommendation would obviously be to stay away
from both smoking and vaping during pregnancy.
