A model for postpartum smoking resumption prevention for women who stop smoking while pregnant



A model for postpartum smoking resumption prevention for women who stop smoking while pregnant



Journal of Obstetric Gynecologic and Neonatal Nursing 35(2): 215-222



Behavior change models and theories have been useful in our efforts to help people stop smoking. However, models that were developed for the general population do not always fit special populations such as pregnant women. Many women stop smoking while pregnant, but most resume smoking after giving birth. To help women who stop smoking while pregnant to stay smoke-free, a model for tailoring a smoking resumption-prevention intervention to the special needs of pregnant and postpartum women is proposed. The intervention begins during pregnancy, continues postpartum, and addresses pregnancy and parenting contextual factors in women's lives. The model is based on motivational theory and includes conducting patient assessments, developing risk profiles, triaging women to different levels of intervention intensity, and matching intervention strategies to women's risk profiles.
