Education Vital in stopping alcohol use during pregnancy

Educating vital to stopping alcohol use during pregnancy – Survey results in Canadian community show that 20% of the local adult population disagree or are unsure that prenatal alcohol exposure can affect a baby’s brain development.  Only 51% of females (ages 18-49) have ever discussed the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure with their physicians and 13% of women recall being told by their physicians that drinking during pregnancy is fine.  The author argues that education of the whole population: men, women, physicians, etc. is essential to stop maternal drinking.
