Colorado Baby and Me Tobacco Free program helps pregnant mothers and their partners quit smoking

The Colorado Baby and Me Tobacco Free Program, a smoking cessation program created for pregnant women and new moms, is offering incentives for new moms and their partners who stay away from tobacco after they deliver.

Baby and Me will offer diaper vouchers to support partners who quit smoking during the first year after delivery. Support partners must:
  • Be a daily smoker at least three months before their partner/family member became pregnant
  • Live with their pregnant woman when they enroll and for a year after delivery
  • Attend four prenatal sessions with the pregnant partner/family member
  • Agree to a CO breath test each month for up to 12 months after baby is born
  • Quit smoking and test tobacco-free by the first breath test after delivery
Baby and Me participants can earn 14 diaper vouchers - two during prenatal visits and as many as 12 after delivery. Baby and me participants also can earn $15 gas cards at select locations.
