    This study investigated changes in smoking behavior across pregnancies in a sample of 10,890 primiparous women participating in the prospective population-based Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa). The study aimed to identify risk factors that may inhibit smoking cessation and promote smoking during a woman’s second pregnancy.The findings offer new and additional insight into modifiable risk factors that may help facilitate more targeted smoking cessation interventions for women at the highest risk.
