Smoking and drinking during pregnancy

One mother’s story is highlighted in this article. She binge drank for two nights, before she even knew she was pregnant. Her son, now 30, has signs of FASD, learning disabilities, and developmental delays. Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders are detrimental but highly preventable. Keep 3 things in mind. You should not be drinking if:

1. You are pregnant or think you might be

2. Planning on getting pregnant

3. Or are sexually active and not on birth control
