The objective of this population-based study was to assess the association between environmental exposure to tobacco smoke during pregnancy and the risk of delivering a small-for-gestational-age (SGA) infant (<10th percentile).
A total of 4,644 nonsmoking women who lived in the Quebec City area and who gave birth between January and October 1989 to a singleton liveborn neonate were included in the analysis.
Information on gestational age at delivery, maternal passive smoking at home and at work, and several potential confounders was obtained by a telephone interview with the mother a few weeks after delivery.
Birth weight was abstracted from the birth certificate.
Overall, passive smokers were at little or no higher risk of having a SGA infant than unexposed women (adjusted odds ratio=1.09, 95% confidence interval (Cl) 0.85-1.39).
