The smoking prevalence rate among adult women and pregnant women has decreased only 0.3 to 0.5% per year since 1969.
Without a nationwide dissemination of efficacious smoking cessation methods based on these trends, by the year 2000 the smoking prevalence among pregnant women will be approximately 18%. This estimate is well above the US department of Health and human services year 2000 objective of 10%. The US dissemination of tested smoking cessation methods could help an additional 12 900 to 155 000 pregnant smokers annually and 600 00 to 1 481 000 cumulatively to quit smoking during the 1990s.
