Pregnant? Think Don’t Drink

PATIENT EDUCATION VIDEO: Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) is an umbrella term that describes the range of effects that can occur in an individual whose mother drank during pregnancy.

Children exposed to alcohol in utero are at risk for growth deficiencies, facial deformities, central nervous impairment, behavioral disorders, and impaired intellectual development. ACOG District II is committed to educating the public of the risks and consequences of drinking alcohol during pregnancy, while offering obstetric providers the proper training and education necessary to improve practice and prevent FASD.
