4 Corners tonight....
I've heard so many women say their OB said a glass of alcohol a day is safe.
I think this condition needs to be a lot more widely known about.
Sad that Australia is so behind in regards to this.

FAS-D on 4 Corners
I didn't watch but I heard it on abc radio this morning.
Apparently some women didn't know that drinking 7-8 drinks A DAY was harmful to unborn baby. Come on!

Just watched it. Thought it was very interesting. More publicity about this is needed. After that I am definitely in the no alcohol is safe camp. When you see what the kids have to deal with, it just isn't worth it.

There's those extremes but they talked about one episode of binge drinking on day 7 of conception as possibly causing FAS-D.
And I definitely think there would be people who believe that one standard drink a day is safe but in that program they said it's not.
500 000 Australians affected.

just watched this. I'm horrified and saddened that FASD has been known of and diagnosed in the U.S. and Canada for the last 20 years at least yet Australia is only just learning about it. why!?!?

I know I'm in the minority on this (or at least I was in the minority on BH last time I saw a discussion on this) but I just don't think the risk is worth it. FAS-D is entirely preventable. There are so many things that can happen that you have no control over - this is one thing that you can have total control over, so to me its completely straightforward that pregnancy = no alcohol.
