People Who are Pregnant or Postpartum

The Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line is available 24/7 and welcomes all pregnant and postpartum callers.

When they call, friendly quit coaches:

  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. For more help, pregnant and postpartum moms can initiate as many calls to the Quit Line as they need.
  8. Send free booklets in the mail. They’re designed especially for pregnant or postpartum moms.
