The STAAR team are available to support you throughout your pregnancy.
Our practitioners understand how hard it is to stop but are there to support you along the way.
The team will meet with you, face to face, for a chat about how you feel about stopping smoking and explain the support they could offer you.
You might like to schedule a 'quit date' at your first appointment or you might like to have a think about it at home and discuss a date at your next appointment - the choice is yours.
When you are ready to quit, the STAAR team are able to offer you Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) for free in the form of patches to wear.
