What is FASD?

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is the term used to describe the lifelong physical and/or neurodevelopmental impairments that can result from fetal alcohol exposure. FASD is a condition that is an outcome of parents either not being aware of the dangers of alcohol use when pregnant or planning a pregnancy, or not being supported to stay healthy and strong during pregnancy.

Speak with someone 🙂

Do you have questions about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder? Would you like to speak to someone confidentially?

NOFASD acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live, and recognise their continuing connection to the land, water and community. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

Supporting the cause!

I spoke with a friend today who's pregnant. She knows my journey. She asked her doctor why no one had asked her if she was drinking alcohol. The response, "we believe women should be allowed to look after their own care!" Only 1 example, not all doctors but 😡 #education https://twitter.com/fscarfe/status/1266092139122880512
