Pregnant smokers more likely to be depressed

http://www.physorg.com/news108666685.html

I found this article interesting just because I wonder if sometimes smokers in general are a little more prone to depression. It’s a way to destress that is ironic because nicotine is a stimulant, which makes stress worse, then you crash, and get more depressed. What a cycle.  I can only imagine how that would play in with the stress of pregnancy, and the fact that let’s be real, most women aren’t so stupid that they think smoking is ok while pregnant.

Much like other depressed mothers these ladies may not realize they need help. It is hard to see the signs in yourself, and it’s easy to say, “oh I’m just addicted oh well”.

Just one more thing to think about.
