Baby & Me Tobacco Free

Quitting smoking is the most important thing you can do
to protect your health and the health of your baby

What is BABY & ME - Tobacco Free Program TM

The BABY & ME – Tobacco Free TM is a FREE program to help pregnant women quit smoking during pregnancy and stay quit after the baby is born.

How Does the Program Work?

  • A pregnant woman will attend four prenatal sessions to receive support and education.
  • After the baby is born, the participant will return each month until the baby is 12 months old.
  • At each session, the participant will take a carbon monoxide (CO) breath test that checks to see if she has been smoking.
  • A participant will receive a $25 diaper gift card for attending each of the first three prenatal sessions.
  • If a participant tests tobacco free by prenatal session four and during the 12 postpartum sessions, she will get an additional diaper gift card for each session.
  • Diaper gift cards can be redeemed for any brand or size of diapers or wipes at local Walmart stores.

Who Can Enroll?

  • Any pregnant woman who is a daily smoker or quit within three months of becoming pregnant.
  • Must be less than 34 weeks pregnant at enrollment based on due date.
  • Any age or income level is eligible.
  • A smoker who lives with a pregnant woman that is currently in the program can also enroll as a Support Partner. If the support partner successfully quits smoking, she/he can receive monthly diaper gift cards during the postpartum sessions.
