Who carries the can? Alcohol and pregnancy
Tindle, Elizabeth (1992) Who carries the can? Alcohol and pregnancy. Drugs in Society, 3, pp. 1-11.
This paper examines legal aspects related to the damage of the foetus in utero and discusses who might have some responsibility for ensuring a healthy outcome. In 2008 the legal ramifications of damage to a foetus were investigated and Australian National Guidelines on alcohol consumption were passed recommending abstention during pregnancy.

Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
