Alcohol consumption during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, premature birth, low birth weight, developmental problems and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
That’s why the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia’s guidelines say that women who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy should not drink alcohol.
Despite this, there are many mixed messages about alcohol and pregnancy.
When it comes to supporting women to have alcohol-free pregnancies, we all have a role to play in providing a clear and consistent message.
Become a community hero and be part of the village of organisations and businesses supporting alcohol-free pregnancies.
