Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) – Pregnant? Think! Don’t Drink – 43rd Video Series
Your baby drinks what you drink – if you are pregnant, think! don’t drink
When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol while pregnant, the alcohol passes into her blood stream and spreads throughout her body. As soon as the alcohol is in her body it passes into the placenta and passes to the baby through the umbilical cord. This increases the risk of FASD
