These Ultrasound Images To Be Used To Encourage Pregnant Women To Give Up Smoking
PLEASE, show this to someone who you know that might be smoking or is pregnant! They need to see this urgently. Dr Nadja Reissland, of Durham University, says these ultrasound scans show unborn babies of mothers who smoke are experiencing delayed development of their central nervous systems.
As you can clearly see in the images, the foetuses are seen touching their faces – a sign of delayed development. Foetuses normally touch their mouths and faces much less as they become more developed closer to their birth.
The 4-D ultrasound scans can be really graphic. Researchers say the shocking images could be used to encourage pregnant women to give up smoking, without a doubt!
