Smoking in Pregnancy – Kickit Campaign
Congratulations, you have a baby on the way what wonderful news.
Pregnancy can be an exciting time, but if you smoke you may also be worried about the effect that smoking will have on your baby. Giving your baby the best start in life is important but being dependent on smoking can make it difficult to quit, you may even have found you want to smoke more. We know you want what is best for your baby and we understand how hard this can be. That is why at Smokefree Hampshire we are here to help you.
Whether you have been referred by a midwife, health visitor or found us on your own, you are in the right place to speak to someone who understands the emotions that come from being addicted to cigarettes and the specific problems you face with quitting when pregnant. The earlier you stop smoking in pregnancy the easier it is to quit and the better it is for both you and your baby and helps to keep your both safe.
At Smokefree Hampshire we offer a FREE specialist, friendly pregnancy support service. We make it as easy for you as we can and you don’t have to attend a face to face appointment but can talk with your adviser via phone or text so it is really convenient. We can offer a supply of FREE Nicotine Replacement Therapy such as patches, which are safe for using in pregnancy or we can give you a voucher for a FREE Vaping starter kit. Switching to either of these is safer to your baby, healthier for you and will really reduce the risks for your pregnancy.
If your partner or other members of your family smoke, we can support them too. We can help them to create a smokefree environment for your baby and give you the encouragement you need.
There is no judgement, only kindness and we are here for you. Having the right support and medication will make it much easier.
