Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine whether an educational video on FAS increases maternal knowledge on the subject and affects their likelihood to drink alcohol. [ Time Frame: Immediate ]

Enrollment: 99
Study Start Date: May 2006
Study Completion Date: January 2010

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Intervention
The group selected to watch the video.
Other: An educational video about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
A 20 minute video about FAS

Detailed Description:
Teenage mothers are asked to participate in the study and then randomized into an intervention or control group. Both groups take a multiple choice survey and then are randomized to either watch a video about FAS or not. After the video (or not for the controls) they then take a post video short answer survey. The survey results are then scored and statistical analysis performed to determine whether the video intervention increased their knowledge about FAS and their likelihood to drink alcohol during pregnancy.
