Alcohol use and pregnancy consensus guidelines.

2010 Aug.
The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada.

Consumption of alcoholic drinks by Canadian women is common, pleasurable for many, and problematic for some. The nature and potential severity of the problems increase when alcohol is consumed during pregnancy. The purpose of this guideline is to provide a rational basis for health care professionals to assess and, as required, counsel and intervene with respect to consumption of alcohol by women who are pregnant or are in the reproductive age group.
