Pregnant? Drugs and Alcohol Can Hurt Your Unborn Baby.
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC.
This brochure, directed towards pregnant women, describes the dangers of alcohol, street drugs, smoking, and prescription drugs or over-the-counter medicines. It presents a story (in the mother's words) of a woman who took drugs to get high while pregnant and the ill effects on her son. The brochure claims being drug free means being a better mother. It presents three promises for pregnant women to make to their babies: (1) not to drink alcohol or to take other drugs while pregnant; (2) to take good care of the baby and not use alcohol or drugs after the baby is born; and (3) to talk to a health care or social services worker if help is needed to stop using alcohol, cigarettes, or other drugs. The brochure concludes with the statement to "Give Your Baby Love, Not Drugs and Alcohol." (ABL)
