Over the last few years Sunny Thinking has worked very closely with the alcohol experts at Manchester Mental Health & Social Care Trust and Manchester Community Alcohol Team developing a number of successful alcohol awareness campaigns. Coinciding with the announcement of the tough new government guidelines on safe drinking levels, we were asked to produce some new materials specifically focussing on drinking during pregnancy and as a new parent.
Sunny Thinking designed a training pack for antenatal staff to support them and help provide useful advice. We also designed a guide for parents providing advice for during pregnancy and after the baby is born. The clear message is pregnant woman are now advised not to drink at all and the literature helps explain the health benefits behind this in a warm and friendly manner.
