Every Moment Matters is a nation-wide project supporting alcohol-free pregnancies and breastfeeding. The project is endorsed and funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.

From the moment you start trying, to the first moment you see the ultrasound and feel the early flutters of movement, right through to your baby’s arrival every moment matters in your pregnancy. Alcohol should not be a part of any of these moments.

Pregnant Pause is creating a community of support for mums-to-be to have alcohol-free pregnancies! Alcohol consumption during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, premature birth, low birth weight, developmental problems and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).That’s why the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia’s guidelines say that women who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy should not drink alcohol. Despite this, there are many mixed messages about alcohol and pregnancy. When it comes to supporting women to have alcohol-free pregnancies, we all have a role to play in providing a clear and consistent message. There is no safe amount, no safe time and no safe type of alcohol during pregnancy.
