Is it true that smoking 5 cigarettes a day during pregnancy is safe?

No. There is no exact amount of tobacco that is safe for the fetus. It is true that smoking a few cigarettes a day is better than a pack, but it should be noted that smokers' bodies are especially sensitive to the first few doses of nicotine each day. Therefore, the difference between smoking a few cigarettes a day or many is not so great.
