The mission of the network for the Prevention of Gestational and Neonatal Exposure to Tobacco Smoke (PREGNETS) is to improve the health of moms and their babies by offering information, resources and support to pregnant and postpartum women and their health care providers.
Our goal is to reduce smoking in pregnant and postpartum women by increasing their capacity to quit and stay quit using a woman centred model of care.
The Pregnets website hosts the most up-to-date information on smoking cessation practices for pregnant and postpartum women, a toolkit for health care providers, an anonymous Online Discussion Board and a personalized plan for quitting or reducing smoking.
The Pregnets toolkit has been developed for health care providers, educators and researchers and provides the essential components to address smoking reduction and cessation among pregnant and postpartum women.
PREGNETS was created with funding from Echo: Improving Women's Health in Ontario, an agency of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. This website does not necessarily reflect the views of Echo or the Ministry.
