Test pregnant women for smoking, says Nice

All pregnant women should have breath tests to see whether they are smokers or not, the UK's health watchdog said.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice) said that every expectant mother should be encouraged to have a carbon monoxide test to see whether they smoke so they can get the appropriate advice for quitting.

However, the recommendation was criticised by midwives who said that medical practitioners should encourage women to quit smoking instead of making them feel guilty.

The watchdog said the new guidelines are not aimed at penalising smokers but aimed at helping women and their families give up smoking during and after pregnancy.

However, Royal College of Midwives (RCM) education and research manager Sue Macdonald said the use of the breath test may make women feel "guilty".

Q. Do you smoke after sex?

A. I don't know, I've never looked.

First heard that one in 1966.

Make it illegal for women who have smoked in the past month to have a baby. Or if they have a baby and it is disabled in anyway, they cannot claim welfare from the government

If they can't afford the treatment, take the baby away. Or euthanise it. It's just a baby
