This study described characteristics, referral, utilization of services, and quit rates among pregnant and non-pregnant women enrolled in quitline cessation services in 10 states during 2006-2008. Results showed that pregnant callers heard about the quitline most often from a health care provider (50%) and non-pregnant callers most often through mass media (59%). Over half of pregnant (52%) and non-pregnant (57%) women received self-help materials only; the rest received counseling. Quit rates (self-report) at seven months after enrollment were 26.4% for pregnant women and 22.6% for non-pregnant women. The authors conclude that quitline provide needed services for pregnant and non-pregnant smokers, many of whom are uninsured, and that smokers should be encouraged to access counseling services.
