And tests show the effects are as bad after vaping as after smoking conventional cigarettes.

Vapers’ babies were unable to grasp a finger in their hand and were not startled by having head support removed.

They were harder to settle and more irritable than non-smokers’ infants.

Durham University researcher Suzanne Froggatt said: “Nicotine can cause devastating effects within the brain.”

Study co-author Professor Nadja Reissland said: “Mothers should not be encouraged to use e-cigarettes during pregnancy.

“Public health policymakers need to be aware that e-cigarette use is not risk free.”

The team said their findings suggest the effects of other forms of nicotine replacement therapy on foetal development might also need further research.
