As the hospital is Smokefree, you will not be able to smoke whilst you are attending appointments or delivering your baby.

At your booking appointment, you will be asked by your midwife if you smoke. It’s really important that you let them know if you do or have recently quit, or if your partner or anyone in your household smokes. It’s our job to make sure we support you to have the healthiest pregnancy possible.

Your midwife will automatically refer you to the Tobacco Dependency maternity team, you don’t have to do anything. A specially trained maternity advisor will be in touch to discuss the next steps and nicotine swaps available to you – it’s that simple!

Please feel free to explore the ‘Bump the Habit’ website for lots of useful information about smoking in pregnancy. 

Never feel afraid to ask your midwife for help at any point in your pregnancy – the best thing you can do for your and your baby’s health is to swap and stop smoking, and we are here to help.
