Free training is available across Alberta for anyone interested in conversations about alcohol and pregnancy and the prevention of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
- The baby’s brain and nervous system develops throughout the entire pregnancy and drinking may lead to a lifelong diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD, or alcohol exposure in the womb).
- If you drink alcohol and are sexually active, make sure you use effective contraception.
- Friends, partners and family members can support a pregnant woman by asking how they can help her to make healthy choices and healthy babies.
This training is part of the Government of Alberta’s 10-Year FASD Plan and is being studied by the University of Alberta.
