More Than 300 Pregnant Women Smoke

More than 300 expectant mums smoking during pregnancy in Torbay, the highest number in the South west.

The figures are NOT down to a lack of help available but mainly because mums-to-be and especially young mums-to-be are frightened they will be lectured to, but that simply isn't the case with a range of support packages you can give up in a variety of ways.

Pregnant mums can also get Nicotine patches free on prescription.

4 thousand poisonous chemicals can be sucked into the body and passed onto unborn children with every puff on a cigarette - 20 of those poisons cause cancer.

Smokefree South West recently launched a smokefree homes campaign focusing on the danger of smoking in the home and the poisonous chemicals left behind, lingering on sofas, carpets and toys long after the smoke has gone.

These toxins from cigarette smoke can harm the health of families and in particular children with their developing immune system.

Concerned smokers can order a 'Smoke Outside' pack by texting OUTSIDE to 81025, or by going online to our dedicated website www.smokeoutside.co.uk
