Our Mission: Healthy babies, born on time!
All tobacco products, including cigarettes, e-cigarettes, vapes and any other products containing nicotine are not safe for pregnant women and developing babies. Nicotine is a health danger for pregnant women and their developing babies and it can damage the developing baby’s brain and lungs.
Quitting tobacco during pregnancy:
Decreases the risk of preterm birth, low birth weight, and birth defects of the mouth and lip.
Reduces the risk of pregnancy complications such as placental abruptions, ectopic pregnancy, and high blood pressure.
Staying quit after pregnancy:
Continues to reduce the risk of Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID).
Continues to lower the risk for respiratory illness, middle ear infections, and reduced lung growth in children.
