What happens next?
If you are a smoker, your midwife will refer to you to this service after your first pregnancy appointment. We will then contact you by phone and text to offer you a telephone or video call appointment. Alternatively, you can ask your midwife to refer you to the Service at any time during your pregnancy or simply contact the helpline yourself and book an appointment with one of our team by calling or texting 07917 227 004.
After your first appointment with us we can provide face-to-face support visits at your home or at a local clinic or hospital if you prefer as part of your Quit 4 Baby stop smoking plan. We can also give prescriptions for nicotine replacement therapy which includes products like patches, mouth sprays, inhalators, lozenges and gum. These are free during pregnancy and can help you cope with cravings.
Together we will come up with a plan, that works for you, to help you to stop smoking, if that is what you decide.
If you are currently in employment you are entitled to time off work to attend a stop smoking appointment. Have a look at the Maternity Action website to find out more, and check with your employer.
I got in touch with the smoking cessation maternity team as I was finding it difficult to stop smoking on my own with no support from a medical professional. They were very kind and very prompt in getting back in touch. I started to see Kelly on a weekly basis who gave me all the support and guidance I needed without being judgmental at all, I felt very confident in speaking to Kelly.
