Heartbreaking Plea From Caller: "Don't Smoke While Pregnant"

This morning Mike E and Emma opened a nasty can of worms when discussing women that smoke while they're pregnant.

Heleni came to us with a moral dilemma after finding out her friend has continued to smoke 2 packets of cigarettes a day while 7 months pregnant. 

We opened up the phone lines so everyone could have their say and got a call that made all our stomachs drop.

Tiff called us to confess that she smoked only a few cigarettes a day during her pregnancies, but it's had a massive impact on the health of her two children.

"Now they both have asthma," she told us.

"My son is 5 now and he plays rugby and struggles to breathe. My daughter is 1 and a half and if she gets sick, it automatically hits the lungs first." 

Now Tiff is issuing a stern warning to other women about why they shouldn't smoke while pregnant. 

"It's just a selfish move by parents. It's 9 months you have to sacrifice because you don't know what complications it can cause later on down the track."
