Yesterday's thread about Chrissie Swan was very interesting, but the most valuable thing I took away from the discussion was the confessions by those posters who had smoked during pregnancy, and struggled with the feelings they had about it. I particularly appreciated bpac's brutal honesty.
For those who opened themselves up to criticism, and took it on the chin as best they could, I wanted to attach this opinion piece from the Age:
Hopefully it will make you feel not everyone judges you.
ETA we had the debate yesterday and please don't reopen it. This is just intended to be here for one purpose only.
