Every day in the North East a baby is born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
It is caused by mothers drinking alcohol during pregnancy.
The children can have a number of disabilities, although it can often go undiagnosed for many years.
Thousands are thought to be living in the North East without knowing they’re affected.
