Quit Smoking Now

Quitting smoking will have many positive affects for both you and your baby. 

Mothers who smoke during pregnancy are three times more likely to have a SIDS baby, and exposure to smoke after pregnancy doubles a baby’s risk of SIDS. Studies have found that the risk of SIDS rises with each additional smoker in the household, the numbers of cigarettes smoked a day, and the length of the infant’s exposure to cigarette smoke. Cigarette smoke is believed to interfere with an infant’s developing lungs and nervous system, and to disrupt a baby’s ability to wake from sleep.
