New Class for Moms & Moms-to-Be will help Quit Smoking, Vaping
Countless moms and moms-to-be quit smoking and vaping every day! And a new class by Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial will offer the tools and support to help give a healthy start in life to unborn, newborn and growing children.
This free, 4 week class will be held on Wednesdays, January 10 through 31, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Tamarac, 1401 W. Main Street, Fremont.
Free child watch services will be provided during the class at the Tamarac Tree House.
Smoking tobacco and vaping nicotine products are harmful to a growing unborn child, as well as to the mom and other children in the household. A mom smoking while pregnant, or even smoking around young babies and children, can increase the risk of prematurity and SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Children living with smoke in the home grow up with more ear and lung infections as well.
But ask any mom: quitting can be one of the hardest things to do because nicotine is so addictive. The Quit Smoking, Vaping Class is the only one of its kind in Newaygo County that is just for pregnant and new moms.
The class will be given by Sally Wagoner, an RN at Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial and a Tobacco Treatment Specialist. Wagoner was trained through the University of Massachusetts’ nationally recognized tobacco treatment certification program, as well as by the SCRIPT program – Smoking Cessation and Reduction in Pregnancy Treatment.
