Butt out - baby on board

Abstract

It is estimated that the cost of treating women and their infants with smoking related problems is up to £87.5 million each year (ASH, 2013). Whilst these statistics depict a major problem for the National Health Service, they challenge midwives to become change agents within this health promotion area. A desired outcome from The Maternity Strategy for Northern Ireland (DHSSPSNI, 2012) includes giving every baby and family the best start in life. Assisting women to stop smoking before conception, could help to achieve this outcome and provide opportunities for a greater start in life following birth.
