Introduction/Aims: Pregnant women who smoke tobacco and have other substance use problems represent a highly vulnerable, priority group who often experience concurrent social problems. Tobacco smoking adds additional risks to these women and their babies, who experience increased risk of preterm delivery, low birthweight and other adverse outcomes. Smoking cessation in this group is uncommon, with few effective interventions to support cessation. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a comprehensive evidence-based tobacco cessation strategy linked to routine antenatal care at two New South Wales Health Substance Use in Pregnancy Service(SUPS) clinics.
