Abstract

This paper describes self-reported maintenance of nonsmoking at six months postpartum by women whose abstinence was verified beginning before the 20th week of pregnancy and continuing through delivery (n = 134). The overall maintenance rate of 37 percent was not related to sociodemographic characteristics, smoking and obstetric history, the time when quitting occurred, or a prenatal smoking cessation program. Although this rate is encouraging, more attention should be directed to sustaining prenatal abstinence from smoking beyond delivery.
