“From the moment you start trying, to the first moment you see the ultrasound and feel the early flutters of movement, right through to your baby’s arrival every moment matters in your pregnancy.
Alcohol should not be a part of any of these moments.
Any alcohol you drink when pregnant passes directly to your developing baby and can damage their brain, body, and organs. It can lead to a lifelong disability known as Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
That’s why the moment you start trying is the moment to stop drinking alcohol.”
