Quitting Smoking in Pregnancy

​Your chances of quitting smoking are three times greater with support than just going it alone.  If you smoke and can quit smoking during pregnancy (preferably before 13 weeks gestation) the risks to your baby and you will be significantly reduced.  Several services are available to provide the support that helps smokers to quit. Your LMC or hospital midwife can make a referral to a smoking cessation agency or your choice.
