Warwickshire stop smoking in pregnancy service


This is our team of specialist Stop Smoking in Pregnancy advisors. We are a free, friendly and professional service who have helped many women just like you and their families to stop smoking. We’re not here to judge or tell you to stop smoking, we’re here to help you be smokefree and have a healthy baby.

We understand that it isn’t always easy to quit smoking and you may have already tried before, but we have the knowledge and experience to help find the best way for you to stop smoking for good.


Dawn Powers – Service co-ordinator 

Hi, I’m Dawn and the co-ordinator for the Stop Smoking in Pregnancy Service. We are a friendly, specialist team of advisors who have almost 70 years of years of experience between us and have helped hundreds of pregnant women just like you to quit. So do give us a chance to help you when we call, you won’t regret it!



Kelly SWFTKelly-Ann Bullingham 

Hi, I’m Kelly and I mostly see women in the Nuneaton & North Warwickshire areas alongside Lynne. I find it very rewarding when a pregnant woman who is worried about quitting succeeds and is happy she has quit successfully for her baby. I look forward to coming to see you and telling you about our service.



Annette SWFT

Annette Lloyd 

Hi, I’m Annette. I mostly cover Stratford, Alcester and South Warwickshire villages and towns. I have been seeing pregnant women to help them quit for several years now. I really enjoy seeing how happy women are when they quit and their carbon monoxide reading drops down, showing how quickly stopping smoking positively impacts their babies oxygen levels.



Deb SWFTDebbie Hammond 

Hi, I’m Debbie and I mostly see pregnant women in Warwick, Leamington & Kenilworth but can travel all over south Warwickshire to see pregnant women. We are a friendly, free service and we can come to see you at home, so no need to travel to clinics, unless you prefer to see us elsewhere. We can also support your partner or family members to quit too.




Lynne Lewis 

Hi, I’m Lynne and I usually see pregnant women in the Bedworth and Nuneaton area alongside Kelly. I really want to help you have a happy and healthy baby and support you to quit smoking. Don’t forget, we can give you FREE Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) too and have up to date information about vaping and using e-cigs in pregnancy.




Bev Avis-Dakin

Hi, I’m Bev. I usually see pregnant women in the Rugby area, but you might see me helping out in other areas too. We know everyone has different feelings about quitting smoking. We’re certainly not going to give you a lecture and tell you to stop smoking, that’s your choice, but we can encourage and support you to quit if that’s what you choose to do.
