Lighting Up Your Family Life, Not a Cig!

Hello to all you future mums and dads out there!

Thinking of starting a little family? First off, huge congrats! 🎉 But let’s chat about a pesky habit that could be throwing a bit of a spanner in the works. Yup, you guessed it – smoking.

1. Cigarettes & The Bedroom Blues

We get it. No one wants to talk about it, but it’s true: smoking can mess with our bedroom game. For the gents, smoking is often linked with, well, less-than-stellar performances (read: impotence). For the ladies, it can make it a wee bit trickier to get pregnant1. It’s a bit of a mood killer, right?

2. For the Mums-to-Be

Ladies, we all want the best for our future mini-me’s. By ditching the cigs, not only do you boost your chances of getting pregnant, but you also drop the risk of things like miscarriage. Plus, you’re giving your bub the best start by reducing the chances of them arriving a tad too early or being on the teeny-tiny side at birth2.

3. Dads, You’re Not Off the Hook!

Gents, it’s not just the mums who need to think about this. By stubbing out for good, you’re not just doing wonders for your own health but increasing the chances of a healthier, happier baby. So, let’s make those swimmers as strong as they can be! 🏊‍♂️

Wrapping It Up…

Starting a family is a massive, wonderful step. And by kicking the smokes to the curb, you’re making a huge move towards giving your family the best beginning. Whether it’s better chances at conceiving, healthier pregnancies, or stronger little ones, quitting smoking lights up your family future.

Cheers to a smoke-free start to family life! 🍼🎈
