The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists publishes a pamphlet on the effects of tobacco, alcohol and drugs on a pregnancy. The pamphlet can be read online or converted into a "printer friendly" format for mass production. Even though the article is written to a pregnant women, students can come away with a wealth of material. The pamphlet is located at http://www.acog.org/publications/patient_education/bp170.cfm

Alcohol effects on pregnant women said...

Alcohol itself is very harmful even for a normal person, then people just don't understand and continue drinking. Once in a while is fine for normal person, but for a pregnant women it is not recommended at all. Drinking alcohol could lead to birth flaws, some physical or mental disorders to foetus.
