I gotta agree with this.
I had a friend in the US. He's now married with a kid, but at the time that he got his girl pregnant, they weren't married yet. The day that she told me she was pregnant, she did so when we were in a bar, and she had a beer and a cigarette in each hand at the time. I didn't have the ability to say anything to her, but I told my friend, the father, about my thoughts on the matter at our soonest sitdown.
I don't know what effect I had personally, but she did cut it out.
The worst part was that they had previously had a miscarriage. It was a big deal for them, and they had split up for a while, partly because of that. Again, I can't say what the cause of the miscarriage was (not to mention the fact that I am assuredly no medic), but it just seemed crazy that given this experience, she was smoking and drinking with a baby in her belly.
The kid was born healthy, and last time I was in the States I visited them, and the three of them seem to be doing just fine, which is great.
