The Baby & Me – Tobacco Free Program is a tobacco cessation program created to reduce the burden of tobacco use among women during the prenatal and postpartum period.

Quitting Tobacco During Pregnancy

  • Decreases the risk of preterm birth, low birth weight, and birth defects of the mouth and lip.
  • Reduces the risk of Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (DUID).
  • Reduces the risk of pregnancy complications such as placental abruption, ectopic pregnancy, and high blood pressure.
  • Lowers the risk for respiratory illness, middle ear infections, and reduced lung growth in children.

How the Program Works

  • Expectant women voluntarily enroll in the program.
  • Once enrolled, attending 4 Prenatal Sessions will be required. Sessions will include cessation counseling, support, and a tobacco use test using a CO monitor.
  • If tobacco-free, participant is eligible for a $25 Walmart voucher during Prenatal Sessions 3 and 4 (two vouchers in total).
  • After delivery, new mom will attend up to 12 Postpartum Sessions to continue receiving cessation support and CO monitoring.
  • If tobacco-free, new mom is eligible for a $25 Walmart voucher each month during the 12 Postpartum Sessions. If a smoking partner who lives with the new mom enrolls and quits the use of tobacco, they receive an additional $25 Walmart voucher, doubling the incentive.

The Participant Must Be

  • Pregnant (less than or at 36 weeks gestation)
  • Current tobacco user, or quit within 3 months of becoming pregnant (if unsure of previous tobacco use, confirm with a healthcare provider)
  • No age or income requirements
