Amandine Pellissard, pregnant: she smokes 7 to 8 cigarettes a day

Usually rather fond of alcoholic beverages , Amandine Pellissard has stopped using since she found out she was pregnant. As for cigarettes, she does not consider herself capable of quitting smoking, but tries to reduce her consumption. ' I'm a basic heavy smoker, so when I'm pregnant I try to reduce as much as possible to achieve: either a full stop or very little, like 2/3 a day “, she said in her live Instagram.

' My midwife always told me: it's better to smoke 2/3 a day and not be 24 of tension than to stress yourself out because you're craving nicotine and craving cigarettes ', she detailed before specifying: ' There, I'm happy, I went below 10. J'en smoke 7/8 '.

For this mother - reconverted in the world of X and who does not intend to stop her new job - who has nevertheless given birth to eight children, pregnancy is probably not a cakewalk!
