Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) affects people who were exposed to alcohol before they were born. The effects of FASD are different for each person, and can range from mild to severe.
While it can be hard to deal with FASD, understanding the disorder can help you manage. It is also important to know the effects of drinking during pregnancy so that young women don’t put their children at risk for FASD.
