Tips To Encourage an Alcohol-Free Pregnancy

There are many things that we can do to help prevent FASD. Partners, family and friends of pregnant women, can support them and help them avoid drinking. Here are some tips to encourage an alcohol-free pregnancy:

  • Don’t drink alcohol around pregnant women
  • Have non-alcoholic drinks available at parties
  • Get together in people’s home or at coffee shops rather than in bars
  • Don’t ever suggest that “just one little drink” will do no harm
