The Facts on Drinking Alcohol During Pregnancy
We’re here to set the record straight. We’re not against responsible drinking. We’re simply for giving every child the best start. Drinking any alcohol at any point during pregnancy can lead to fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) – a range of birth defects with effects that are lifelong and irreversible. If you’ve heard differently, you’ve heard wrong.
There is no safe amount of alcohol to drink during pregnancy.
Proof Alliance's FASD Prevention Work
It is a vital part of our mission to make sure that everyone has fact-based information on alcohol and pregnancy. To do this, we employ a variety of ways to reach people:
- Attend community events in Minnesota to discuss the importance of planned, alcohol-free pregnancies
- Promote alcohol-free mocktails which offer a refreshing alternative to drinks containing alcohol
- Fund the College Ambassador Program grant, and the Family-Centered Long-Term Recovery Supports grant, both of which are aimed at preventing prenatal alcohol exposure
- Share public awareness campaigns across the state; If you want to learn more about how you can share the FASD prevention message, check out our free Prevention Toolkit.
