The FASD Prevention Conversation is an important step in raising awareness and supporting the prevention of FASD in Alberta. It involves engaging health care and social services professionals to provide them with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to engage their clients/patients in a supportive and non-judgmental conversation about alcohol use during pregnancy, its lasting effects on the developing child, and resources and supports available to women of childbearing age.

    

What can I do to help prevent FASD?

Research shows that a brief, non-judgmental conversation about the effects of alcohol use and pregnancy can be very effective in motivating a woman’s decision about alcohol use and pregnancy.
