Bristol, TN -- A local hospital is coming up with a more visual way to encourage pregnant mothers to quit smoking.
She is named Smokey Sue. Sue is a doll with a fetus in side. Of course, it’s not real. But Sue is designed to show what happens when a mother smokes a cigarette or inhales smoke in general. The amniotic fluid becomes yellow and cloudy.
Kelly Jo Sexton of Bristol Regional says, "Our other Smoky Sue is a smoker and she's been exposed to 4 cigarettes. So you will see the tar and nicotine that darkens the fluid that her baby has to survive in."
Bristol Regional medical center uses Smokey Sue in pregnancy classes and also shows her to mothers in the hospital who are smokers.
Bristol Regional also suggests a way to help them quit just call 1-800-QUIT-NOW. (reprinted from www.tricities.com)
