England: women smoking during pregnancy 2006-2019 In the period 2018/19, 10.6 percent of pregnant women in England smoked at the time of delivery. The share of pregnant women smoking has decreased since 2006 when almost sixteen percent of pregnant women did so. Smoking during pregnancy can lead to many birth complications, so it is advised that the expecting mother quits smoking for the health of the baby.
