Abstract

Alcoholism among women has increased during the last decades. Thus it is likely that an increasing number of pregnancies will involve risk of alcohol damage to the fetus. In this article, two antenatal programs are presented to identify pregnancies at risk. Adequate alcohol information seems to be sufficient for socially drinking women, whereas alcoholic women need extensive support to abstain from alcohol. The psychosocial support was not experienced as intrusive.
