Quitting for Two is a Bright Start

A first-time pregnancy can be an equally exciting and overwhelming phase of life. Extra support and medical care is important for the health of every woman and every baby, and use of tobacco products during and after pregnancy can lead to health complications.


  1. Highlight the SD Quitline support and resources available for pregnancy women.
  2. Describe how the SD Quitline, For Baby’s Sake, and Bright Start program work together to improve the health of women and babies.
  3. Encourage health care professionals and caregivers who serve pregnant women to provide referrals to these programs.

Speakers: Kaitlyn Ashley, Tobacco Cessation Coordinator, Black Hills Special Services, Shelly Freese, MSN, RN Coordinator| Bright Start/Nurse Family Partnership
Office of Child and Family Services, SD Department of Health
