Moderate‐certainty evidence shows that providing incentives such as monthly or incremental rewards starting at 9 to 16 weeks’ gestational age improves smoking cessation rates among pregnant smokers up to 24 weeks postpartum (220 vs 92 per 1000 women; all results on average) and likewise enhances abstinence rates at delivery (240 vs 86 per 1000 women; based on 1244 women). Smoking cessation was ascertained through self‐report or via biochemical testing. Trials did not report adverse events associated with incentives.
