    Yes yes I do. Would I say something no I wouldn't but I stopped my medication for the duration of all of my pregnancies meaning I lived with crippling pain each pregnancy then what's a few cigarettes and as a health care professional I'm yet to hear a valid medical reason to give your baby carbon monoxide poisoning in the womb. I stopped narcotic analgesia as I couldn't bare the thought of my child requiring time in NICU to withdraw from my medication. Did I cry in pain every day- yes, did I want those meds every day- yes but I knew what was best for my baby so if anyone else says they can't do what's best for their baby I can't understand that.

    I silently judge but I would never say anything. For all I know she's struggling to quit but giving it her best.

    I do known someone however, who took up smoking when pregnant because it can cause small babies and she didn't want a big one... I was gobsmacked at that...I'll admit it took a lot of self control to not say anything there.

    Just clarifying that all.

    Exactly why I don't confront randoms on anything not knowing how they will react is enough go me to bite my tongue

    Yes, I do judge and cringe when I see it. I also get a little sad for the unborn baby. I do not express my disgust verbally to them though, nor do I give them evil looks.

    I hate smoking in general and think it should be banned in public places.

    If I was a pregnant smoker, I cannot imagine I would be bold enough to spark up in public though. I'd be totally ashamed.

    Yeah I do, but more so those who smoke marijuana. I know two people who smoked marijuana when pregnant, they have beautiful kids with serious health problems and it makes me so sad.

    In my situation we were in a two story old queen slander with an open upstairs veranda I was standing there having a smoke and the lady who shouted at me was walking on the footpath so I was in my home not in public but she still felt the need to verbalise her opinion

    I never had a smoke in public pregnant it was a disgusting embarrassing habit that I didn't want to be judged for. But even in my own property I still coped judgment

    yes i secretly judge..cant help it. i gave up smoking whilst TTC...which actually makes me even more judgemental cos i think i did it why cant they even tho i know ppl differ in the ability to quit etc...i work in the addictions field as well...i see lots of babies born to mothers on various drugs...feel very sorry for the babies (i do feel sorry tho for mums on methadone as they tell me some of the nurses in hospital treat them with absolute disgust, different to nicotine as u cant stop methadone when pg..prob why i dont judge them)

    Yes I do judge pregnant women who smoke. I think its selfish and just plain stupid. I wouldn't ever say anything to a stranger. I did say something to my best friend though. She was only having a sneaky one every few days but it was enough for me to tell her to pull her head in which she did.

    Yes i would judge. I would never say anything to them though.

    I also judge people who are smoking while pushing prams with a baby inside or smoking with a child running around copping their second hand smoke.
