New app to help young mums-to-be to quit smoking

< Back to News

LANCASHIRE County Council has launched a new mobile app to support young pregnant women to quit smoking for the sake of their own health and their baby’s.

The new ‘Quit for Us’ app helps with continued support after women have attended their initial stop smoking service appointment. It provides encouragement, helps tackle the myths behind smoking during pregnancy and clearly explains the benefits of quitting.

The app also includes helpful information about the size and development of a baby at different stages of pregnancy, a savings calculator and a quiz based on useful facts about pregnancy.

The Quit for Us app can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play .  If you would more information on Blackburn with Darwen’s Stop Smoking Service you can call The Wellbeing Service on 01254 682037
