Who can help me with my alcohol problems during pregnancy?

ANSWER

If you can't stop drinking on your own, tell your doctor. You can also contact a support group like Alcoholics Anonymous or a local alcohol treatment center. The website for the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence has helpful information on treatment and recovery.
