Description:

Number of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 15 years and over, who gave birth within the previous 12 months and whose smoking status has been recorded as one of the following: 

  • current smoker,
  • ex-smoker, or
  • never smoked.
Rationale:Smoking during pregnancy is a risk factor for adverse events in pregnancy, and can be associated with low birth weight, pre-term birth, fetal growth restriction, congenital abnormalities and perinatal death. Low birth weight infants are at a greater risk of dying during the first year of life and are prone to ill health in childhood. Smoking during pregnancy is also associated with increased risk of spontaneous abortion and ectopic pregnancy.
