A 32-page patient education booklet, A Pregnant Woman's Guide to Quit Smoking, provides strategies and tips to increase success.
The guide contains a self-directed 7-day plan that culminates a quit date set by the pregnant smoker.
An 8-minute motivational video, Commit to Quit, that features former pregnant smokers describing their motivation and strategies to successfully quit smoking.
The video — available as a DVD or digital download — demonstrates behavioral skills to quit smoking and augments provider counseling.
An initial counseling intervention held between the pregnant smoker and the healthcare professional.
Counseling for 10-15 minutes utilizes the 5As framework and introduces the pregnant smoker to the patient guide.
The healthcare professional follows a semi-structured dialogue to share proven cessation strategies with the pregnant smoker and to encourage her to identify her own reasons for quitting.
At a follow-up visit, the healthcare professional provides counseling with the patient to encourage or maintain smoking cessation. Emphasis is put on establishment of the smoke-free home.
