Countless studies since 1959 and to this day, have shown that smoking at pregnancy REDUCES the risk of pre-eclampsia as well as strong indications it reduces the risks of PIH (pregnancy induced hypertension). In fact, the benefits of smoking are dose-dependent with percentages of up to 50% LESS risk. The results have been "consistent" and "reproducible" in low-risk pregnancies. No need to write much more, find the actual study papers online yourselves and get the facts.
