Today is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Awareness Day!
From the Public Health Agency of Canada: “Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is an umbrella term used to describe the range of disabilities that result from prenatal alcohol exposure. It is the leading known cause of developmental disability in Canada.”
FASD is 100% preventable. No alcohol during pregnancy is the best option in FASD prevention.
