Quitting smoking during pregnancy

Jackie O’Shea- Stop Smoking Lead in Quitting Smoking in Pregnancy.

The dark night are coming to an end. Warmer weather is just round the corner.

Congratulations on your wonderful news.

Have you though about giving up smoking. It’s the best time to quit,

for your health and your unborn baby.

The good news is:

  • When you quit smoking, within 24 hours your oxygen supply will return to normal. Carbon monoxide will be eliminated from the body.


  • After 48 hours- your body is now nicotine free. Your baby will be less likely to be born prematurely.


  • By quitting, you reduce risks of premature birth, miscarriage, still birth, SIDS and respiratory conditions after birth.


  • Also saving lots of cash to spend on your newborn baby!

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) and Vapes ( over the age of 18 years) are free in pregnancy.
