Perinatal substance use is a critical public health concern and alcohol remains one of the most used substances during pregnancy. Despite risk of harm from alcohol exposure, patients often hear mixed messages in the media. In this session, we will review screening tools for alcohol use during pregnancy as well as potential fetal impacts of perinatal alcohol use.
