Special Programs

Baby and Me Tobacco Free 
A program for pregnant women to help them quit smoking. During the prenatal period, each enrolled participant receives four counseling sessions, quit support education and carbon monoxide (CO) testing to verify non-smoking status. After the birth of the baby, the mother returns every month for 12 months, to continue CO monitoring and, if still smoke-free, she receives a $25 voucher for diapers. The mother may use her voucher for any brand or size of diapers at Wal-Mart stores. Please call Kim at 970-641-7911 to enroll.
