Abstract
First paragraph: The long‐awaited World Health Organization (WHO) substance use in pregnancy guidelines, developed by the WHO Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, were published early this year. Written primarily for health‐care providers, the aim of the guidelines is to promote good practice in the care of pregnant and post‐partum women who use alcohol or drugs, or who are alcohol or drug dependent, with the goal of achieving healthy outcomes for both mother and baby.
