Benefits of caseload midwifery to prevent fetal alcohol spectrum disorder: A discussion paper

This paper provides an overview of FASD and discusses the role of caseload midwifery as part of a multi-level prevention approach. Drawing on previous research, researchers conclude that preventing FASD will be more likely if women experience a supportive relationship with a known midwife, who has received appropriate training and can enable women to feel comfortable in discussing and addressing alcohol use.
