Women in Recovery

What is Changing Course?

An educational series that can change the course of a life.

Changing Course is a series of educational classes for women who drank alcohol and/or used drugs during their pregnancy. This series addresses many of the issues that these women face, including:

  • The shame, blame and guilt they feel as a result of substance use, abuse, or addiction while they were pregnant.
  • The myths around alcohol and pregnancy. Not all women who drink during pregnancy are alcoholics, however many are in recovery. These women are from every race, age, socio economic level. None of them intentionally want to harm their children.
  • The basics of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and why using drugs and alcohol during pregnancy can be harmful.
  • Strategies for parenting a child who was prenatally exposed to alcohol.
