Baby & Me-Tobacco Free Program
The Florida Department of Health in Citrus County is certified to offer the BABY & ME – Tobacco Free Program™, an evidence-based smoking cessation program designed to help pregnant women quit smoking for good.
The program provides FREE counseling support, resources and incentives to pregnant mothers (no later than 36 weeks) who are current smokers, or who have quit within three months of becoming pregnant.
Upon successfully quitting and staying smoke free, enrolled participants are eligible for FREE DIAPER VOUCHERS during the prenatal period and up to 12 months following the birth of their baby. If you smoke and you live with an enrolled pregnant woman, you can also join the program and, if you successfully quit, you may receive diaper vouchers as well.
To enroll in the program, pregnant mothers should contact their health care provider or email Carmen Hernandez at Carmen.Hernandez@FLHealth.gov or call 352-513-6072.
