In brief: Reduce the chance

Smoking affects pregnancy from preconception to after delivery--it reduces fertility, increases risk of many complications of pregnancy including miscarriage, low birthweight, placenta diseases, among many others.
Children whose parents smoke have more asthma, ear infections, upper respiratory infections, and potentially more adult lung cancer due to second-hand smoke exposure.
