The Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Prevention Program is a collaboration between ACOG and the CDC. Our goal is to empower healthcare providers to speak with their patients about abstaining from alcohol use during pregnancy. FASDs are 100% preventable.
ACOG has developed clinical guidance utilizing evidenced-based research. Three committee opinions speak to healthcare provider questions regarding ethics, alcohol use in pregnancy, and motivational interviewing techniques.
FASD Prevention Video Series
ACOG has created several short videos that discuss the importance of speaking with patients about alcohol use during pregnancy. The videos feature ACOG Fellows with expertise in substance use during pregnancy.
