Most pregnant women want to stop smoking, but some find it hard. Around one in ten smoke at the time of delivery. NRT is available on the NHS for pregnant women who struggle to stop smoking, but most do not use enough NRT or take it long enough for it to work. We know that pregnant women who smoke are most likely to make use of NHS support if they find this relevant to them and easy to understand. Therefore, we have developed a tailored support package, which aims to improve use of NRT, to give pregnant women the best chance of quitting smoking.
