BABY AND ME TOBACCO-FREE PROGRAM

Baby and Me Tobacco Free is a program for pregnant mothers who smoke and wish to quit. Participants attend four prenatal quit smoking sessions that provide them with positive encouragement to quit their tobacco addiction. Participants agree to quit smoking and stay quit during their pregnancy and to take a monthly breath test to prove they are tobacco free. An incentive for mothers to stay tobacco-free after their baby is born is monthly vouchers for free diapers, for up to 12 months.
