The MAMA study was a mixed methods project, running from 1 August 2018 to 30 June 2019, looking at midwives' practices around alcohol advice in antenatal care. This project explored the implementation by midwives of the Chief Medical Officers’ (CMO) alcohol drinking guidelines with the key objective of identifying barriers and facilitators to inform future practice.
