About the Course:

The relationship between pregnancy and smoking is a significant concern among health professionals. Smoking during pregnancy can cause low birth weight, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), learning and behavior problems, and lung problems. Quitting smoking while pregnant can increase the chance of having a healthy baby. This webinar will address key strategies to help pregnant smokers to quit.

This course is based on the recorded webinar, How to Talk With Patients About Smoking Cessation and Pregnancy created by John McHugh, MD and Robert Felix in 2016.
