Alcohol Use in Pregnancy


Alcohol use in pregnancy is known to cause behavioral, mental and physical problems in children who have been exposed to alcohol during pregnancy.  There is no known safe amount of alcohol use during pregnancy. If you drink and are planning a pregnancy or want further help on stopping your drinking, contact COFAS Personal DECISIONS Line:

Personal DECISIONS (1-888-724-3273) is a resource for providers, as well as women in the community who are drinking and want to change their risk-drinking behavior. When a woman calls this number she is assessed for Alcohol Exposed Pregnancy (AEP) risk and other concerns.  She is mailed information with resources and referral information as well as a self-guided change packet. The client can complete the packet and then share it with her provider for a more focused brief intervention.  1-888-724-3273. The message is in both English and Spanish.
