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?

"I knew I shouldn’t drink during pregnancy, but pregnancy was so far in the future that it was nothing for me to worry about. But the idea that I could have become pregnant in the past and placed my baby at risk of FASD before even knowing I was pregnant, was shocking" #ThinkFASD https://twitter.com/NOFASDAustralia/status/1291118029380747264

A large part of the reason for lack of diagnosis, treatment, & services for #FASD #NPAE is that hardly anyone in medicine believes it exists. Medical schools, teaching hospitals, training programs, even government reports overlook this prevalent condition. https://twitter.com/nightshiftmd/status/1289911162654482438
