Smoking/Vaping & Pregnancy

It Is Never “Too Late” to Quit Smoking/Vaping During Pregnancy!

Leeds, Grenville and Lanark counties have higher than provincial average smoking/vaping rates during pregnancy. Whether planning a pregnancy, or already pregnant, it’s never too late to quit smoking/vaping.

Quitting smoking/vaping before getting pregnant is best, but for women who are already pregnant, quitting as early as possible can still help protect against some health problems for their developing babies, such as being born too small, or too early.

It is important to quit smoking/vaping for good. A woman might think it is safe to start smoking/vaping again after her baby is born, but babies of mothers who smoke may breathe in the second-hand tobacco smoke that can harm their health. Although quitting for good can be hard, the benefits are worth it—a healthy baby and many more years of good health to enjoy with him or her.
