The Prevention Conversation: A Shared Responsibility Project

cropped-woman.pngResearch matters.

Being a parent is the most important job in the world. But it doesn’t come with a manual. Findings from research can help you to make good decisions for you and your baby.

Maternal health matters.

What you choose to eat and drink during pregnancy can help or harm your developing baby.

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is caused by drinking alcohol during pregnancy.

Your health matters for both you and your developing baby.

FASD is a lifelong disability that is preventable. In Canada, at least 350,000 people currently live with FASD and approximately 4,000 babies are born with FASD each year.

The Institute of Health Economics and the University of Alberta are studying ways to help support maternal health through the use of technology.
