If you needed another reason NOT to smoke while pg (infant death mentioned)

So there is couple I know in a 6-degrees to Kevin Bacon sort of way. A mutual friend of ours posted on FB asking for prayers because they'd lost their baby

I was sorta shocked because I'd just seen this woman 2 or 3 months ago and as far as I could tell she wasn't pg (she's very very very overweight so I dunno maybe that is why?). Well turns out SHE didn't even know she was pregnant (both of the couple are mentally handicapped so maybe that is why?) the baby was born a month and a half premature with lungs of a 3+ month preemie. The parents made the choice to disconnect life support.

She was a heavy smoker, as was her boyfriend, so from what I heard that contributed to the baby's lungs being so poorly developed. I feel horrible for them.

So prayers for the family as they deal with the loss
