About Every Moment Matters
Almost one in three Australians aren’t aware that drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). Nearly one in four aren’t aware alcohol should be avoided altogether during pregnancy for the health of mum and baby.
That is why the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) has developed Every Moment Matters — a nation-wide project supporting alcohol-free pregnancies and breastfeeding.
The project is endorsed and funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.
Every Moment Matters aims to support Australians to stop drinking alcohol through all the moments of pregnancy, from the moment they start trying to get pregnant. It is the first phase of a broader program of work and will run from November 2021 to July 2024.
Every Moment Matters is endorsed and supported by:
