Do not drink alcohol during pregnancy
Drinking alcohol while you are pregnant or breastfeeding can cause a lot of harm to your baby. Alcohol can injure your baby's brain and cause Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS).
A child with FAS is brain-damaged for life. There is no cure for FAS. Your child will have serious learning problems and will be unable to lead a normal life.
It is never too late to stop drinking, even if you are already pregnant.
What should I do?
Talk to your health care worker or doctor about how you can give up alcohol.
