Alcohol

Alcohol can affect your overall health. Following the low risk drinking guidelines can reduce the risk of many long-term health problems.

In Canada, about 50% of pregnancies are unintended. Alcohol use during pregnancy can result in serious lifelong harm for a developing baby, even before a person may know they are pregnant.

No alcohol is the safest choice when a person is trying to become pregnant, if they thinks they might be pregnant or if they know they are pregnant.
