The safest option for mom and baby is not to consume alcohol during pregnancy. Alcohol exposure in the womb can cause FASD. Parters, friends, and family members play an important role in supporting healthy pregnancies.
FASD is a lifelong disability that affects the brain and body of people exposed to alcohol in the womb. Each person with FASD has both strengths and challenges. They will need special supports to help them succeed with many parts of their daily lives.
The only cause of FASD is exposure to alcohol while in the womb. There is no known safe amount of alcohol to use during pregnancy.
Go alcohol-free and think FASD every step of the way to prevent this disability.
