|A new government campaign aimed at helping pregnant women to quit smoking is to be rolled out nationally.
The move follows news that many pregnant women who are smokers choose not to approach their doctors seeking help to quit because they feel too ashamed and are worried they will be judged.
Of 224 pregnant smokers questioned as part of the NHS Smokefree campaign, a quarter (25 per cent) admitted that the reason they had not sought help to quit was concern about being criticised.
