Scholin Alcohol Occasional online

Lisa Scholin, Research Assistant at the Institute for Social Marketing, University of Stirling and PhD student at Liverpool John Moores University spoke at SHAAP/SARN's 2015/16 Alcohol Occasional seminar series about alcohol in pregnancy. In her presentation, Scholin outlined the main themes around alcohol in pregnancy and the  associated risks of consuming alcohol during pregnancy. She then outlined findings from her PhD research which examined advice about alcohol given to women, parents and midwives in England and Sweden. There were significant differences between the two countries with pregnant women in England more likely to consume alcohol during pregnancy and believe this was okay. Scholin concluded that risk is culturally framed and this influences the advice given to women in both countries and how it is perceived - a summary of her presentation's key points can be found here.
