An exploration of the recommendations in the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada (SOGC) Consensus Clinical Guidelines

Media coverage about drinking in pregnancy has been lively over the 6 months since the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada (SOGC)  issued their Alcohol Use and Pregnancy Consensus Clinical Guidelines.

This session will provide the opportunity to unpack the myths and realities related to harms associated with drinking in pregnancy, and explore the practices recommended by the SOGC.  Discussion of issues surrounding the application of the guidelines in a range of contexts will be welcomed.
