Many pregnant women stopped smoking


Cigarette smoking during pregnancy declined in all 50 states and the District of Columbia between 2016 to 2021.

The drop in Alabama was to 6.1%...a 40% drop since 2016.


Figure 4 is a map showing the change in percentage of mothers who smoked cigarettes during pregnancy: United States and each state, 2016–2021 and percentage of mothers who smoked during pregnancy: Each state, 2021.

And yet, some states are in double digits!

 In 2021, levels of smoking during pregnancy ranged from a low of 0.8% in California to a high of 18.2% in West Virginia.
