When the urge to smoke strikes remember the '4Ds'

  • Delay: Delay for a few minutes, the urge will pass
  • Deep breathe: Breathe slowly and deeply
  • Do something else: Ring a friend or practise your pre-natal exercises
  • Drink water: Take 'time out' and sip slowly

Talk to your doctor today about how you can stop smoking for good.

Smoking increases the risk of:

  • Miscarriage
  • Premature labour
  • Infection and breathing difficulties due to low birth weight
  • SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome)
