There are many ways to lower your risk of having a baby with FASD.
If you’re not using birth control, avoid drinking any alcohol. This way your baby will have no chance at all of developing FASD.
If you have just found out you’re pregnant and have been drinking up until now, do not drink alcohol from now on. If you need help stopping, ask your doctor to help you find resources or a support group. Or you can do your own research. You can start by looking at the information listed below.
If you know you’re pregnant but are struggling to stop drinking, try your best to cut down on the amount and frequency. If you need help to do this, talk to your doctor or someone close to you about ways to manage the amount of alcohol you drink.
