Many partners want to support their pregnant partners. Service providers can involve partners, directly and indirectly, by:
• Including information about how partners can support women in both preconception and prenatal materials
• Asking women if they would like to invite their partner or a close family member or friend to their next appointment to discuss how they can support them in achieving an alcohol-free pregnancy, as well as making healthy choices overall
• Sharing suggestions of how soon-to-be parents can be supportive of their pregnant partners. Encourage partners to ask pregnant women what kind of support they need to avoid alcohol, reduce stress and still have fun.
