Investigation into the Causes of Smoking in Pregnancy

Our stop smoking client consultation report where we asked women why they struggled to stop smoking during pregnancy in Bristol and North Somerset. What did they think about services to help them and how did they work?
No smoking report

Key Findings

  • They found that many women cut down smoking during pregnancy, but increased once their pregnancy ended.
  • Some of them reported that support was not very well connected between services which supported them before they gave birth, and those which supported them afterwards.
  • They recommended that more focus should be given to support for women once their pregnancy finishes, and that these types of support should be more joined-up.

 

What Next?

We recommended that more focus should be given to support for women once their pregnancy finishes, and that these types of support should be more joined-up.
