Tobacco Free

The Heart and Stroke Foundation recommends:Tobacco-Free

  • No smoke exposure is safe during pregnancy, for either the mother or the unborn or newborn baby.
  • Smokers have a higher chance of having miscarriages, stillbirths, premature babies and babies who are smaller at birth.
  • You can protect the health of your children by creating and maintaining second hand smoke-free spaces, at home in the car and in the community.
  • Going smoke free sets an extremely important example for your children.
  • Becoming smoke-free can extend your life, even if you are over 60 years of age.
  • There is help available if you are struggling to become smoke-free, it can be really difficult, so don’t be afraid to ask for help and support from family, friends and your healthcare provider
