#WineMoms: Humour and Empowerment or Binge Drinking and Mental Health Challenges?

The term ‘wine mom’ and the culture behind it has grown in recent years as mothers have begun sharing their experiences online on various social networking platforms. This growth has further highlighted the roles that systematic and social structures play regarding alcohol in a women’s life. With Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) being one of the most common developmental disabilities, this panel will identify how the ‘wine mom’ culture relates to FASD and the importance of prevention.

In this webinar, Dr. Kelly Harding and Lisa Whittingham discuss ‘wine mom’ culture and how alcohol, particularly on social media, is used to subvert the idea of constant perfection that is often associated with motherhood.

This is a recording of a webinar from July 28, 2021. It is co-sponsored by the CanFASD Research Network and the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute.
