The BABY & ME – Tobacco Free Program™ is an evidence based, smoking cessation program created to reduce the burden of tobacco on the pregnant and postpartum population.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of tobacco on our society.
Fulton County Health Department, with the help and guidance of the Ohio
Department of Health, work through the Baby & Me program to address the
high prevalence of tobacco use among women during and after pregnancy. Trained
nurses provide services to eligible clients through prenatal and postpartum
counseling cessation sessions, up to 12 months after the birth of their child.
To qualify for this program, they must be pregnant, less than or at 36
weeks gestation, and a current tobacco use or quit within 3
months of becoming pregnant. Once enrolled, these women are provided with the
tools they need to successfully quit tobacco and stay quit after their baby is
born. The results are improved birth outcomes and long-term positive outcomes
for women, children, and their families.
