Alcohol Fetal Syndrome

Alcohol Fetal syndrome is a spectrum of abnormalities resulting from foetal alcohol exposure, caused by drinking during pregnancy. Neurological problems are caused by damage to the central nervous system, (brain and spinal cord) leading to poor growth, small head and jaw and learning disorders.

Recommendations for alcohol would be no more than 1 to 2 units, once per week and should not get drunk. Preferably for women not to drink alcohol altogether.
