No smoking campaign aimed at pregnant smokers

5th February 2009

The government is to launch a powerful campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of women smoking during pregnancy.

It aims to encourage public support for pregnant women in their attempts to quit and to drive take-up of the specialist pregnancy NHS Stop Smoking Services. The new campaign will target the 100,000 (17%) of pregnant women in England who smoke during their pregnancy by communicating why smoking is harmful to them and their baby, emphasising how every cigarette smoked restricts the essential oxygen supply to an unborn baby.
