Drugs and Alcohol

Now is the time to quit if you are planning a pregnancy or are already pregnant. Bringing a baby into the world is a great motivator for change and the benefits to your health and the health or your baby will be immense and long-lasting.  

Avoiding alcohol is safest for your growing baby. The NHMRC states there are no known safe levels of alcohol consumption in pregnancy. If you are having trouble reducing or cutting out alcohol altogether, talk with your GP. The resources below will also be useful.
