E-cigarettes are significantly less harmful to your health and the health of your baby than cigarettes. This is because the main harm from smoking is from the toxic chemicals in the tobacco smoke.

Please Note: Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust remains a smoke-free site. The use on e-cigarettes and tobacco products is prohibited.
