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?
This short film shows Melissa, a pregnant woman learning about the risks. It includes excerpts from Dr Raja Mukherjee, Joanna Buckard and Dr Peter Hepper. The facts are startling.
If you had small amounts before you knew you were pregnant or while pregnant, in most cases the RISK is low. Choose to stop drinking now for your baby’s future. If your child has challenges later, ask doctors about FASD.
Early diagnosis matters.
