  1. Smoking and Pregnancy 12/3/12

  2. Smoking and Pregnancy: Why is it a public health problem? • Cigarette smoking during pregnancy: • is one of the most common preventable causes of infant morbidity and mortality • increases the risk for pregnancy complications and poor outcomes • is associated with adverse outcomes for children

  3. Epidemiology • Risk factors include: race, age, education • AI>White>Black • Adolescents> 25 years or older • High school graduates> college graduates • In 2009, 9.3% of all mothers smoked during pregnancy: • 30% of small-for-gestational age infants • 10% of preterm infants • 5% infant deaths • 776 infants deaths annually (2000-2004)

  4. Prevention

  5. Current Availability/Utilization • Smoking-attributable neonatal health care costs, in 2004: 148.5 million • Increased hospital stays, years of life lost, and cost burden

  6. Intervention Cost • Smoking cessations intervention program cost $24-34 and saves $881 per U.S. pregnant smokers • net savings of up to $8 million • Cessation programs: • reduce number of low birth weight babies • reduce use of ICU • shorten length of hospital stays • decrease service intensity

  7. Intervention Outcomes • A review of clinical outcomes for pregnant women who quit smoking revealed: • a 20% reduction in the number of low-birth-weight babies • a 17% decrease in preterm births • an average increase in birth weight of 28g

  8. Policy: ACA • 2010: all states required to offer comprehensive tobacco cessation coverage for pregnant women with no regard to co-payments • 2013: increased reimbursement for states that provide tobacco services • 2014: state programs may not exclude tobacco cessation medications from coverage

  9. Life Course Model • Smoking while pregnant: • makes women and their children more vulnerable to health and behavioral problems • secondarily affects other children/ offspring

  10. MCH Leadership • need for prevention and support that focuses on health mother and child: • collaborations among agencies that focus on early intervention • collaborations among health professionals and networks for continuity and comprehensive patient care • reduction of negative risk factors

  11. MCH Leadership • Also needed is: • increased public and media awareness and coverage of women’s and children’s • advocacy efforts similar to those seen with breast cancer • research that focuses on gender specific outcomes • implementation and evaluation of state/ national prevention and smoking cessation programs

  12. In conclusion smoking among pregnant women continues to be a public health concern. However, with more specific interventions, collaborations, and strategies, smoking among pregnant women can be greatly reduced.
