Community interventions directed towards improving indoor air quality for children are often implemented after exposure has occurred and focuses on parental smoking cessation. Our proposed project will intervene during the prenatal stage prior to exposure and continue to support families 6 months postpartum. Infants are at an increased risk of secondhand smoke exposure due to the amount of time they spend in the home and proximity to the smoker. We hypothesize that by enhancing care of the current home visitation model to include an early intervention we will increase the amount of smoking bans in the home and decrease maternal cigarette consumption.
