We all want our babies to be healthy. Smoking during pregnancy is not only bad for your health, but also bad for your baby’s health. Chemicals in cigarettes and e-cigarettes can cause babies to be born too soon, too small, or have other problems. Smoking around infants and young children is also unhealthy and can cause them to get sick more often, especially colds and breathing problems. Choosing not to smoke is one of the healthiest decisions you can make for you and your children.
Healthy Start offers FREE confidential and professional support to help you quit smoking! If your partner smokes or uses e-cigarettes, we can help him quit too. If you are pregnant or have young children and need help quitting, you are able to receive free services. It doesn’t matter what type of insurance you have – even if you have no insurance – you are still eligible for help. Please contact us at 941-861-2912 to sign up or get more information.
