FASD is completely preventable by abstaining from alcohol while pregnant (and while trying to conceive).  While pregnant women are accustomed to hearing varying advice on whether it is safe to drink “lightly,” it is important to note that there is no scientific evidence available that sets a “safe” amount of alcohol that will not affect the developing fetus. Women are encouraged to talk with their obstetricians, pediatricians and other health care providers so that they can not only understand the risks, but also make the best choice for the health of their baby.
