Smoking in pregnancy

Stopping smoking is the best thing you can do for your baby to have the best possible start in life. The risks of smoking during pregnancy are serious, from premature delivery to increased risk of miscarriage, stillbirth or sudden infant death. Quitting smoking helps your baby develop healthily during pregnancy and beyond.

We have a dedicated Stop Smoking Specialist Advisor, who can support you over the telephone. Our Specialist Advisor will discuss what treatment options are available for you, and ensure you have as much support as possible to help you quit. She can also support a partner or other family members in a quit attempt at the same time. Contact us or ask your Midwife for more information.

No matter what stage you’re at in your pregnancy, it’s never too late to stop smoking.

Illegal tobacco

Illegal, or illicit tobacco is smuggled, bootlegged or counterfeit, sold cheaply and tax-free and often linked to large-scale organised crime.

A number of UK house fire deaths have been directly attributed to the use of illegal cigarettes and when tested, illegal cigarettes have contained extremely high levels of tar and carbon monoxide (up to 80% higher than permitted), yet contain less nicotine than indicated. Illegally produced tobacco is sometimes produced with banned or high levels of pesticides and herbicides – these can have negative impacts on your health as well as on the health of the workers and the environment where the tobacco is produced.

To report information about illegal tobacco, please visit the South West Illegal Tobacco website.
