REDUCING smoking rates amongst expectant mums by 7% in the Greater Glasgow area could save the lives of 13 babies a year.

Estimates suggest that 17% – nearly a fifth – of women in the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde area smoke during their pregnancy, despite repeated warnings of the risks to their offspring.

The health board said pre-natal maternal smoking remains a “significant” issue and has set a target to reduce rates to 10%.
