Babies born to mothers who used e-cigarettes during pregnancy had the same birth weight as babies born to non-smokers, according to a new study.

Researchers at the Coombe Hospital in Dublin looked at 240 women who had a history of only using e-cigarettes.

The study published in the Irish Independent found that the birth weights were significantly higher than babies born to smoking mothers.

Babies of the vaping mothers had an average birth weight of 3.47kg, which was similar to non-smokers.

While babies of smokers weigh on average 3.116kg.

Babies of tobacco smokers are on average 200 grams lighter than babies of non-smokers.
