Stop smoking in pregnancy service

The stop smoking in pregnancy team are specialist practitioners who can support you to stop smoking. Their friendly advisors support pregnant women over the telephone and provide free Nicotine Replacement Therapy for women who want to quit.


However you decide to feed your baby, stopping smoking will have multiple health benefits for the whole family. If you are a smoker and feel you are unable to stop, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you shouldn’t breastfeed. Please contact our team for advice.


Pregnant smokers can help to protect themselves from the increased risk of serious health problems linked with Covid-19 by quitting smoking. Smoking damages the immune system, which may give the body less protection against the virus. Pregnant women are classed as a vulnerable group who should follow government advice to reduce the chances of contracting Covid-19.
