The Baby & Me Tobacco Free project is an evidence based, smoking cessation program incentivizing pregnant women to stop smoking by giving them free diapers for up to a year after their baby is born. It’s success rates are one of the highest in the nation with Colorado being the first to take the program statewide.

– Eligible for $25.00 diaper vouchers Prenatal Session 3 & 4 if they test tobacco free. Total value of prenatal incentive – $50.00
– After the baby is born, stay tobacco-free, eligible for 12 months of $25.00 diaper vouchers, 1 per month, breath test each visit total of 14 months of free diapers.
