Alcohol and Pregnancy toolkit overview

The following toolkit provides an overview of evidence-informed approaches to preventing alcohol harm during pregnancy in your Local Drug Action Team (LDAT). LDATs can access the full version of the toolkits through the Community Action Plan platform LOG IN link (top right).

The Alcohol and Pregnancy toolkit refers to evidence-informed information, resources and programs for parents-to-be and their families to abstain from alcohol consumption prior to and during pregnancy.

These activities can target all people who are sexually active (or likely to be) and people who are pregnant. This includes people of all genders who can fall pregnant, including cis women, transgender and non-binary people and any potential partners.

The main condition resulting from alcohol consumption during pregnancy is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) – a lifelong condition that affects the brain and body of people who have experienced pre-natal alcohol exposure.
