People Who are Pregnant or Postpartum

The Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line welcomes all who are pregnant or postpartum to contact us. When they do, friendly quit coaches will:

  1. Help each woman create a quit plan that’s right for her and her baby. This includes how to deal with stress.
  2. Be supportive. No judgments.
  3. Discuss the benefits of quitting.
  4. Talk about staying smoke-free after giving birth. Exposure to second-hand smoke is a major health risk to the baby. It’s linked to asthma, ear infections and sudden death.
  5. Discuss medicine for postpartum women. It will not be sent to pregnant callers unless requested by her doctor.
  6. Talk about the role of friends, relatives or a partner in the quit attempt.
  7. Offer ongoing support.
  8. Now available via phone, text, or live online chat!

It’s FREE. It’s confidential. It helps.
