'Smokey Sue Smokes for Two' health education doll, for illustrating the effect of cigarette smoke on the foetus when smoking during pregnancy, by Adam, Rouilly Limited, Sittingbourne, England, 1995.

Smoking during pregnancy has harmful effects on unborn babies and this health education device uses shock tactics to represent the effects of smoke on a seven-month-old foetus. Smoke from a lighted cigarette in Sue’s mouth is channelled through to the foetus, which is immersed in water to simulate the womb. As Sue ‘smokes’ the cigarette tar and nicotine collect at the water line.

‘Smokey Sue’ was used to educate pregnant women and young people about the dangers of smoking. Effects can include increased risks of miscarriage, cleft palate, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
