Also, nicotine, which also spreads out over the umbilical cord in the body of the baby, may lead to abnormalities of the fetus, as well as to an increased susceptibility of asthmatic diseases.

Was found in the examination of testicular tissue of embryos driven from, that the germ cells in the case of smoking mothers by up to 55 percent were reduced. From these cells, the sperm cells develop later. Therefore, the scientists suggest that smoking may adversely affect the fertility of the offspring. Another danger for mother and child carry invasive investigations. Due to the increasing incidence of age-related high-risk pregnancies must be sought for the early detection of possible damage of embryo according to alternative methods. A variation is the so-called Ersttrimesterscreening. While the risk of abnormalities can be computed by an investigation of the blood of the mother and an ultrasound measurement of the nuchal translucency of the unborn child.
