Pregnancy and Smoking Cessation Study

Full Title
A pilot study of behavioral intervention on maternal smoking cessation in pregnancy
We are looking for pregnant women who are interested in quitting smoking for a research study. The purpose of this study is to see if our program will help mothers quit smoking and improve the health of mothers and their babies.

The program will use counseling, feedback, and other evidence-based strategies to change smoking behaviors. It is very safe without use of any medications or devices. Our program has helped more than 60% of our patients to quit smoking in pregnancy successfully.

The program will last from early pregnancy until 1 year after delivery. There are 3-7 visits before the program starts, 22 program visits, and then biweekly follow-up visits until the end of pregnancy. The study visits take place at UB's South Campus.

Participants will receive free smoking cessation service, and be compensated up to $265 for time and transportation. Compensation will be given after each patient visit. Free child sitting service in our clinic will be provided if needed.
