Off the back of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Awareness Day, our featured resource from the ADF online shop this week is the Alcohol, other drugs and pregnancy booklet.
Pregnancy is a time of great physical and emotional change for women and their partners. It’s also a time to review choices about alcohol and other drug use.
This booklet aims to answer some of the questions you might have about the effects of alcohol and other drug use during pregnancy. The information provided covers a variety of legal and illegal drugs, prescribed and over-the-counter medicines. Also discussed are the concerns about alcohol and other drug withdrawal during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Head to the ADF’s online shop to snap up some booklets, and to see the full range of resources.
