ACOG committee opinion. Number 316, October 2005. Smoking cessation during pregnancy.

Abstract

Smoking is one of the most important modifiable causes of poor pregnancy outcomes in the United States. An office-based protocol that systematically identifies pregnant women who smoke and offers treatment has been proven to increase quit rates. For pregnant women who are light to moderate smokers, a short counseling session with pregnancy-specific educational materials often is an effective intervention for smoking cessation. The 5 A's is an office-based intervention developed for use by trained practitioners. Techniques for smoking reduction, pharmacotherapy, and health care support systems can help smokers quit.
