Councillors add their backing to smoking campaign

Councillors have added their backing to a new smoking campaign aimed at reducing the number of women who smoke while pregnant in Sheffield.

“Being pregnant can be one of the most rewarding times in a woman’s life and there is no doubt new parents want the best start possible for their babies. I am sure everyone knows the health risks associated with smoking when pregnant – to mothers and of course their babies. But we know it can be really hard to quit smoking, especially if it is something you have done for a long time. Having someone to support you with this process really does help."

– Councillor Jackie Drayton, Sheffield City Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Families
