|An NHS trust has proposed a new scheme to encourage more pregnant women to give up smoking by offering rewards such as vouchers and baby goods.
Under the plans proposed by Telford and Wrekin Primary Care Trust in Shropshire, pregnant women would be tested to see if they had managed to quit their nicotine addictions.
Examinations such as carbon monoxide monitoring, breath tests and samples of urine and saliva may all be used to help medical professionals prove that pregnant women's bodies are free from nicotine and other harmful substances found in cigarettes.
