Baby & Me Tobacco Free Program

The Daviess County Health Department offers smoking cessation classes for pregnant women.  These classes offer smoking cessation tools and accountability to participants to assist with tobacco cessation. 

The goal of the program is to improve health outcomes of these mothers as well as improving the health of infants.  Diaper vouchers and other free incentives are given to women who are successful in this program.  There are no income or age requirements to enroll.  Women are eligible to enroll if they currently use tobacco products or have used tobacco products within 3 months of becoming pregnant. 

This is a nationwide program which follows the Clinical Best Practice Guidelines for Treating Tobacco Dependency and is very successful with a 60% + quit rate among those enrolled.
