Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Description

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) is a pattern of mental and physical defects that can develop in a foetus when the mother drinks alcohol during pregnancy.

The timing and frequency of the alcohol consumption during pregnancy are major factors in the risk of a child developing FAS.

The ingestion of alcohol does not always result in FAS.

The effects of FAS are irreversible.
