Partners, friends, and family play an important role in supporting healthy pregnancies and preventing fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). This holiday season, choose mocktails over cocktails!
There is no safe time, amount, or type of alcohol to drink during pregnancy. The safest option is to go alcohol-free if you’re pregnant, planning a pregnancy, or having unprotected sex and at risk for an unplanned pregnancy.
You can help support healthy pregnancies by:
- Going alcohol-free with your pregnant friend, partner, or family member
- Providing alcohol-free alternatives
- Hosting alcohol-free events
The holiday season is typically a time of indulgence. Mocktails are a great way to make everyone feel included in the festivities without feeling pressured to drink. Stay safe and healthy this holiday season with these fun, fancy, festive mocktail recipes!

Stopping or reducing alcohol use at any time can improve your baby’s health and wellbeing. If you have had alcohol during your pregnancy, talk about it with a trusted health care or service provider. If you think you may have a substance use issue, connect with your health care provider, counsellor, or support network.
