Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Awareness Month

September is Fetal Alcohol Awareness Month! Did you know that alcohol exposure during pregnancy can interfere with a baby’s healthy development and is directly associated with brain damage and other birth defects? Brain damage can occur across a spectrum from mild to severe and may not be recognized until the child is an adolescent or older.
