The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have recently added a page to their website that highlights resources that doctors can access to help them address patients’ use of alcohol and other potentially harmful substances during pregnancy. Studies by the CDC indicate that drinking among pregnant women has increased in recent years, causing some concern. Among women who reported drinking while pregnant, use of marijuana, tobacco, and other substances was quite common.

The new web page offers medical providers access to research, clinical decision-making tools, trainings, and continuing medical education resources to help them better understand and address the problem of consumption of alcohol and other substances during pregnancy, as well as the developmental disabilities that may result. The webpage can be found here.
