FASD

April is Alcohol Awareness Month

The Arc of Fort Bend is promoting an awareness campaign about the dangers of drinking alcohol during pregnancy.  Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is far more prevalent than originally thought.  There is no safe amount of alcohol during any trimester, as it depends on each woman’s genetics and the genetics of the baby. 

FASD is the #1 preventable cause of intellectual disabilities. 

It’s just not worth the risk.
