but what if it hadn't?
how would you have felt sitting in the hospital running over all the silly choices you made and wondering what it was that brought you harm?
to me, as tough and annoying as it is, i'd rather avoid that scenario as much as I can and if it did happen, I could at least rest easy knowing I didn't court unnecessary danger by gobbling sushi or blue cheese when the guidelines quite clearly advise to stay away from them.

Just did some reading (yes, I can read too) and it appears that in France, they actually have a label on alcohol bottles stating that "consumption of alcoholic beverages during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can have serious health consequences to the child"

The 'I did X during my pregnancy and my kid is fine' gives me the pips.
How many times have I read that anecdote is not evidence on BH?
This is a serious issue with a growing evidence base that for some reason has been allowed to sit pretty unnoticed in Australia. With estimates of 500000 victims who need to have their condition recognised and get early intervention (or any intervention) I think a really open conversation on how to prevent this number growing needs to be had.
After all it has to be one of the few foetal abnormalities that is 100% preventable.

Guidelines are just that. Guidelines.
About FASDs I'm just waiting for a study to show that some kid was affected when a mum drunk 1 standard drink in her pregnancy. But they can't do that. They can't say 1 drink is ok or 10 or 20.
So they say 0.
Personally I can't believe 1 standard drink a month or a week would put a children at risk.

I think it's a long shot too..that something may happen to the baby...but why take the risk.
It's a totally 100% preventable syndrome. .. just not having alcohol for a short time. It's not a necessity.
