Abstract: The smoking behaviour of a randomly selected group of pregnant Maltese females attending the Antenatal clinic at Karin Grech Hospital, Malta was studied during the first four months of 1988. The group was also screened with regard to educational attainment, occupation and attitudes to smoking. It was found out that 45.4%, used to smoke before getting pregnant while 22.6% still smoked during their current pregnancy. The reasons for and the duration of the smoking habit are among the findings that are discussed.
