Johanna Bruischart and Daniel are the first couple to complete the entire BMTF program in Vanderburgh County! They attended all four pre-natal sessions, and all 12 postpartum sessions. They have remained SMOKE FREE! This couple went smoke free for the love of their babies and feel very strong at staying smoke free! – Vanderburgh County Health Department


“We have been a smoking family for years.  Everyone in our family smokes.  This program has been helpful to have a support person because now our household is smoke free.  Neither of our babies will be around secondhand smoke at home, which is a huge step and a huge relief. The tips for quitting and the incentives made this program legit to us” – Samantha and Kristina, Healthy Communities Coalition (Clinton County)

I can show others how its possible.

BMTF have given me lots of tips and information to use when I wanted to smoke and genuinely care about my success. The diapers helped when I was at the last straw and didn’t care about anything else. I thought about the diapers and it calmed me down. We didn’t buy diapers all year!” Zipporah Isaacs, Bartholomew County Health Department
