The impact

Alcohol can be toxic
to developing brains and bodies.

There’s no proven safe amount of alcohol in pregnancy. Even one drink can have an effect on a fetus. Scientists can’t yet say which person exposed to alcohol in the womb will have FASD and which won’t.

Why take that RISK?

Pregnant and had alcohol?
Speak with your GP or midwife and check out #Drymester.

Early diagnosis matters.
