The study population consisted of 512 pregnant women, who were selected by convenience sampling method and assigned into two groups of smoker and non-smoker. The groups were matched considering the age, early pregnancy weight, parity, and family history of preeclampsia.

Results: According to the results, there was a direct relationship between preeclampsia, preterm labor, placental abruption, birth weight and APGAR score with hookah consumption during pregnancy. However, no significant correlation wa sseen between intrauterine fetal demise and hookah consumption during pregnancy (P<0.05). Conclusion: Hookah smoking during pregnancy can make a significant difference in maternal and neonatal complications.
