The one thing I hope you learned from our 10 Things About FASD campaign is that it is a life-long disability and the numbers of those affected are staggering. Most do not know they were affected.
Many of those who are affected by FASD's find help and diagnosis under one of the Alphabet Soup of co-occurring disorders.
The best thing we know about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder that it is 100% preventable.
No one need to suffer the long term affects and struggles caused by prenatal alcohol consumption.
Think about it, from statistics 50% of all pregnancies are unplanned. By the time the Mother finds out she is pregnant and STOPS DRINKING ALCOHOL is may already be too late. But stopping any time along the line can help lessen the effects.
No amount of alcohol is recommended for a pregnant Mother. It may be her right to drink, but STOP and think about the baby who may have their full potential lessened by drinking while pregnant.
