In brief: Not really
This is always an interesting question.
Nicotine is dangerous for a pregnancy and can cause fetal growth problems among other things. No amount of nicotine is considered safe so the best option is to avoid completely. That being said there are many other dangerous substances in tobacco smoke. In patients who can not stop, the doctor & the patient would weight the risks of nicotine patches.
