Dr Peter Hepper: there is no safe limit – 49th FASD Video Series
When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol even low doses of alcohol that’s 2-3 or 4 glasses per week the fetus changes its behaviour by decreasing its movement. The study also shows the fetus delays in development as well as in learning responses. All these aspects are controlled by the fetus’s brain and when a pregnant mother drinks it affects the child’s brain. There is no known safe amount of alcohol during pregnancy.
