Later this spring, the American Lung Assn.'s Los Angeles chapter again will sponsor the "World's Biggest Baby Shower" to alert young pregnant women to smoking's dangers.

Statistics bear that out: 20% to 40% of all women who become pregnant are smokers and only about 25% stop during pregnancy, experts say.
