International FASD Awareness Day
International FASD Awareness Day is observed every year on 9 September at 9:09am in recognition of the importance of being alcohol-free for the nine months of a pregnancy. There is no known safe amount of alcohol which can be consumed during pregnancy and the National Health and Medical Research Council, Australia (NHMRC) and the Australian Government Department of Health and other affiliated medical bodies all advise that no alcohol is the safest choice during pregnancy or when planning a pregnancy.
