This resource aims to provide information about alcohol and pregnancy to health professionals working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in the Northern Territory (NT).

Yarning about alcohol and pregnancy was developed to assist health care practitioners, educators, drug and alcohol workers and Aboriginal Health Practitioners to assess and provide interventions for alcohol use with clients.

The resource is a booklet that can be filled out in conjunction with a patient, and discusses:

  • health risks to you and your baby
  • no amount of alcohol is safe when pregnant
  • if alcohol is a worry
  • reasons to change
  • tips for change.

The resource was produced by the Remote Alcohol and Other Drugs Workforce Program, in conjunction with the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE), Menzies School of Health Research and Aboriginal and Islander Initiative.
