Drymester promotes alcohol-free pregnancy

FASD CYMRU supports Drymester's message. For generations, we’ve been given mixed messages about whether there is a safe time or amount of alcohol to drink during pregnancy. However, the facts themselves are quite clear.

The Chief Medical Officers for the UK advise that if you’re pregnant or planning a pregnancy, the safest approach is not to drink alcohol at all, as this can lead to long-term harm to your baby. The more you drink, the greater the risk.

#DRYMESTER is a new campaign from the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership. It aims to spread this correct guidance about the risks of drinking alcohol during pregnancy and help parents-to-be go alcohol free.
