FASD

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is diagnosed "by a medical practitioner when there is known, significant prenatal exposure to alcohol and the child exhibits three main characteristics:Evidence of growth retardation; Evidence of central nervous system damage, and evidence of facial abnormalities" (Manitoba Education, Training, and Youth, 2001, p.1.4).

The only way someone can get FASD is if their mother drank alcohol when she was pregnant.Alcohol causes brain damage in the developing baby. THERE IS NO SAFE AMOUNT OF ALCOHOL DURING PREGNANCY. There is also no safe TIME to drink alcohol during pregnancy (Public Health, n.d)There is no gene for FASD! This means that a mother who is diagnosed with FASD will not pass it to her child if she does not drink when she is pregnant.
