Smoking in pregnancy

Give your baby the best start in life by quitting smoking

When you smoke a cigarette, the poisons and chemicals from the cigarette smoke are passed on to your baby through the placenta.

The risks of smoking during pregnancy are serious, from premature delivery to increased risk of miscarriage, still birth or sudden infant death.

The earlier you stop smoking, the better. Stopping at any stage can prevent many problems and will be a big help towards having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. It’s never too late to stop!

What support is available?

There’s specialist support for mums to be, and you can bring your partner or family members with you if they want to quit too.

Using our specialist support, you are 4 times more likely to quit for good!

You can choose the support that suits you best, so if you prefer to have one to one meetings with an expert, with text chats or calls to catch up for morale support, you can!

For some of our mums, they prefer to meet with other mums and talk about their week, sharing tips and ways to help cope with cravings. We can put you in touch with local groups so you can find the support you need to help you become smokefree.
There’s loads of support on the Smokefree website if you want further information about smoking in pregnancy. You can also join some online forums with other mums to be on packing in the habit.
