The Leicestershire NHS Partnership Trust Stop Smoking Service is pleased to make people aware of the baby charity Tommy’s, who help provide solutions to inform parents about stopping smoking and giving their babies a better start in life.
Tommy’s funds research into pregnancy problems and provides information to parents. The charity raises awareness of the problems caused by smoking during pregnancy, from potential side effects and harm to the unborn baby to advice on getting onto the right path to quit smoking. Cigarette smoke can be very harmful to your unborn baby. Breathing in someone else’s smoke whilst pregnant is dangerous too. Smoking can also even reduce fertility in both sexes, so smokers often find it difficult to conceive.
Carbon monoxide leaves your body after only two days of stopping smoking, meaning that you and your baby can breathe easier and your baby can start to grow at a normal rate in a relatively short period of time.
