Concerned About Your Drinking

While avoiding alcohol use during pregnancy may seem like a simple action to some, it is not always that easy for everyone. This is especially true for a person struggling with an alcohol addiction. Some individuals need extra help to abstain from alcohol when they are pregnant.

You are invited to be a part of the Circle of Hope group, where women with incredible strength join together to share their stories, shed the shame and support each other through the challenges of raising children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).
