Default Second hand hookah smoke.

Does anyone know the dangers of secondhand hookah smoke? Particularly around a pregnant woman?

You are gonna get a shitload of ass backwards and unfounded info on this one. Theres not much thats known about hookah smoke in general. Some say its worse than this or that, others say its not.

Personally, I dont think second hand smoke from hookah is any issue at all. And some studies ive read show that second hand smoke from cigarettes dont do anything at all...

So just use your discretion and try to use proper manners when smoking and dont blow smoke at them, and I wouldnt think it to be a good idea for a pregnant woman to partake. But to stay on topic. Im sure she could be in a small room with someone smoking hookah for her entire pregnancy and see no ill effects at all.

To reiterate what Nick stated above, you have to bear in mind that there just isn't much research that has been conducted on the effects of hookah smoke, either first or second hand, to post a definate good/bad reply to the question. I'd say search the web and see what info you can dig up. Then, make a conscious choice for yourself on this one. You can ask a Dr., too, just to make the effort well rounded but from the medical community you are going to get a resounding negative response, I am sure. They aren't going to give you an advise with which you might be able to turn around and sue them if ever there were any problems. So, without giving you any direction at all, research for yourself, consider all of the information that you find, and make a decision based on what you've learned. Sorry for being so vague but it is an issue for which, at this point in time, there isn't a conclusive answer to give. Smoke happy.

I must say it all depends on who you ask. A Dr. is going to react like her left arm is going to fall off being around a Hookah in general. In General yes smoke is bad for the fact it effects the lungs its not raw oxygen. Granted if you partake in smoking around them I would keep it ventilated in the room. So all in all I would say its not bad as long as its not hotboxed.

I suggest keeping a pregnant woman away from all sources of smoke however benign they may be. Why expose her to any factors that could be detrimental in even the slightest?

whether or not it's dangerous, i think a pregnant woman would want to avoid it just for the possibility. a friend was recently pregnant and wouldn't eat deli meats, seafood, or soft cheeses just because there was a slight chance of it complicating the pregnancy (so her doctor said). i fully agree with everyone above that there's probably absolutely no harm done by second-hand hookah smoke, but as an easily avoidable factor, why risk it?

90% of the "Smoke" is water vapor. they still put the warning on the box because its still a tobacco product. but the extra 10% of smoke is CO2 nicotine and if your using QL coals, magnesium

My mother smoked while pregnant with me, and although I didn't come out completely effed up...I did have a few birth defects. Nothing life threatening or something that I suffer with now, but it was something I had to deal with when I was a kid.

I'm completely healthy now but I would say to all smokers that they should respect the woman and the baby. Hookah smoke may not be toxic, but who wants to take that risk?

Smoke outside or when she's not at home. Just my $.02

Even IF there is no information knows about second hand hookah smoke, it is probably not good for the little one, it is either very bad or not so bad.
She got two things to look out for! The baby and hookah!

Grad students take note, there is potential for a good thesis paper here.
