Smoking in Pregnancy

17th January 2024

We know the single most important action for a pregnant people who smoke to improve her chances of a successful pregnancy is stopping smoking. Whilst many still see smoking as “lifestyle choice”, we must remember that cigarettes are designed to lead to physical dependence, mainly due to the addictive properties of nicotine. 

The Maternity and Neonatal Voices Partnership (MVNP) and NHS in Norfolk and Waveney is working closely with partners across our community to improve services for people who smoke during pregnancy and to support them to quit.
