Alcohol and Pregnancy
Mon, 9 September 2019
To mark Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Awareness Day, the HSE’s Alcohol Programme has today launched a new leaflet to provide clarity and advice for pregnant women about pregnancy and alcohol.
The prevalence of alcohol consumption during pregnancy in Ireland is high, and exposure to alcohol can lead to life-long difficulties.
Joining us was Dr Mary T. O’Mahony, HSE Specialist in Public Health Medicine, and a leading expert in the country on this topic.
