Brochure covers the effects of drinking, traditional teachings about pregnancy and where to get help in Ontario

Best Start Resource Centre in Ontario has released a new brochure for Aboriginal women who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy and their families on pregnancy and alcohol.

The brochure is inspired by First Nations water teachings and Sky Woman and includes information on why there is no safe time or safe amount for consuming alcohol while pregnant, traditional teachings about pregnancy and where to go for help if alcohol is a problem for the pregnant woman or her partner.

You can order print copies through the Centre or download the brochures for free from here.

Best Start Resource Centre has a wide range of other Aboriginal materials as well as other materials related to alcohol use in pregnancy.
