Patient : Hi doc! i am 7 weeks pregnant right now and my problem is that, my husband smokes. although he doesn't smoke inside the house. but before we go to sleep, he smokes outside and when he comes back, he brushes his teeth but i can still smell the cigarette from his shirt and hair. i just want to know doc, does it have the same effect in our baby if i smell the residue from his shirt? does it have the same effect like a secondhand smoker? thank you doc!
