    Default 'I knew it was wrong': Chrissie Swan admits to smoking while pregnant

    Also the fact that nine an then had a poll attached to the article "is it ok to confront a pregnant woman when smoking" I mean are you kidding? I found that poll disgusting and very inappropriate

    I like her but I don't think she's brave. She's fessing up because she was caught. I hate "celebrity" and the public ownership it brings. But I do think she's brave being in public spotlight in the first place!

    But. I did find it interesting that she smoked in the car. Would've that'd be the worst place if you're trying to hide it. And ew. It's illegal to smoke with kids in the car but yukky when I see smoking even with empty baby seats.

    To an extent I agree with you but I do think that if you are in the public eye and it comes to being in your home, or on your phone (someone had their phone tapped recently, can't think who) or in your car (as was Chrissie) or at your private villa (a la Kate) then it should be hands off for the paparazzi

    Wrong. Here comes the lynch mob for any pregnant woman who
    Has a drink
    A smoke
    A burger
    A soft drink

    A stranger or a friend/family member you want to quit? Ive seen many threads over the years of people asking how to speak to a family member or friend about their 'damaging' behaviour etc. and that would be considered confronting them.

    In your car isnt private. Tapping phones and the whole Princess Kate thing are both totally wrong...but a car? Its surrounded by see-thru windows, its hardly an invisibility cloak.

    Not everyone sees drinking a fanta and smoking a cigarette while pregnant on the same level... Just saying.

    Smoking while pregnant is disgusting.

    There was also that contraversy with Chrissie being surprised at her oldest child being overweight because he ate 'too many bananas.'

    I don't know what to think. One part of me wants to say "...ahhh... You are overweight and obviously have NO idea about health issues." The other part wants to say "But Chrissie seems like such a warm and incredibly loving person."

    The private reality doesn't match the public persona. Confused.

    "Disgusting and inappropriate" ... They are phrases that could be directed towards women that smoke when pregnant...

    I love Chrissie Swan, and I am so angry and saddened on her behalf.

    She is not committing a crime. Smoking while pregnant is not illegal. . She is a woman, who smoked while pregnant... as NUMEROUS other women in Australia do every single day.

    I think it's disgusting that she was shamed and that she felt like she had to make a statement about it, apologise for it and have it all over the TV and news.

    I don't think smoking while pregnant is a good idea - but you know what? We all do things that others think are dangerous while pregnant. We are none of us infallible. She smoked. Big effing whoop. Leave her alone.
