Two common medications reversed memory and learning problems in rats exposed to alcohol while in the womb, according to researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago. “We’ve shown you can interfere after the damage from alcohol is done.

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are a group of birth defects caused in babies when the mother drank alcohol during pregnancy.

FASD is 100 % preventable if the mother does not drink alcohol during pregnancy and similarly is also 100% permanent. The damage done by the alcohol cannot be undone or cured. What does alcohol do to your unborn baby?

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are a group of birth defects caused in babies when the mother drank alcohol during pregnancy. FASD is 100 % preventable if the mother does not drink alcohol during pregnancy and similarly is also 100% permanent. The damage done by the alcohol cannot be undone or cured. No, because FASD are the result of prenatal alcohol exposure.

Still, it is a good idea to limit alcohol consumption while providing breast milk to your baby because alcohol can pass through your milk to your baby. Drinking beer does not increase your milk supply, as urban myth suggests. Although as many as one out of 12 pregnant women drinks to some extent while carrying a child, any alcohol consumption may result in serious and lifelong damage that.

Alcohol crosses the placental barrier and can stunt fetal growth or weight, create distinctive facial stigmata, damage neurons and brain structures, and cause other physical, mental, or behavioral problems.

Exposure to alcohol later in pregnancy is less likely to cause major anatomical defects in the fetus, but because of the complex course of physiological maturation in the brain throughout preg­nancy, more subtle behavioral defects can result.

Fetal alcohol exposure can cause structural and functional abnormalities, ranging from mild neurobehavioral deficits to facial malformation and developmental delay.

Prenatal exposure to alcohol does not automatically cause the fetal alcohol syndrome: Many children who were exposed to alcohol in utero will have some, but not all, of the symptoms of FAS (Cunniff, 2003; Rourke & Grant, 2009).

Alcohol use during pregnancy is deleterious at any stage of pregnancy and can cause problems ranging from spontaneous abortion and fetal death to congenital, cognitive, and behavioral problems; in fact, alcohol use during pregnancy is the most common cause of nongenetic mental impairment.

  • Oh god…. I was told one or two was fine. So occasionally I did have one small glass if we’d go to a restaurant. And with both pregnancys i didnt know for a month and I do/did like to go a bit wild(irish stereotype I’m afraid)
    My three kids seem fine though.. hitting development might stones before or right on time. I hope they are not damaged.

  • One of my girl bullies back in high school picked on me for my autism. Well at the time I didn’t really accept my diagnosis, and she also picked on me for my odd sense of humour. She was glamourous, had the potential to be in the in crowd but never did. Finally had enough of what she was doing to me after she turned into a jerk, so after six months, I blocked her.

    She was bullied since she was held two years back, and people assumed she was stupid.

    Years later, I messaged her and told her about my autism, and another reason why I acted childish was cus in the Asian society, you had to show respect to your elders, hence sounding like a kid was okay. A grown Japanese woman in her thirties could sound like a kid.

    Then she told me that her mother drank when she had her. All that time, she took it out on me that she could have been childish like me.

  • My cousin has fetal alcohol syndrome. She was taken away from her biological mother and my Aunt and Uncle adopter her. She has severe disabilities because her bio mother was an alcoholic and drank very heavily throughout her entire pregnancy. Luckily, my aunt and uncle gave her a safe, loving, healthy environment to thrive. But, I have witnessed first hand how alcohol affects fetuses and because of that, I never drank during my pregnancy. It is not worth the risk. This will affect and child SEVERELY for the rest of their lives.

  • How can you know for sure? I took two pregnancy tests a few days apart and both were negative, so one day at dinner I had a glass of red wine. Well it turns out I was pregnant and I feel terrible about it. My daughter seems fine and does well at school and is reading at an advanced level but she is very sensitive and emotional. Anyway I always think about it and feel so guilty about it.

  • Thank you for this video. Its easy to understand from a consumers perspective. I will be using to show pregnant mama’s in an effort to raise awareness on FAS and how to prevent it.
