OVERVIEW: What is fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS)? Can a single drink cause FAS? Can pregnant women safely drink in moderation? Who is at greatest risk of giving birth to a child with fetal alcohol syndrome? How we can reduce FAS?
What is Fetal Alcohol Syndrome?
Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is a serious health problem that tragically affects its victims and their families, but that is completely preventable. Causing a child to suffer from fetal alcohol syndrome is really nothing short of child abuse and it lasts for life. Babies born with FAS tend to weigh less and be shorter than normal. They usually suffer from:
smaller heads
deformed facial features
abnormal joints and limbs
poor coordination
problems with learning
short memories
Victims of fetal alcohol syndrome often experience mental health problems, disrupted school experience, inappropriate sexual behavior, trouble with the law, alcohol and drug problems, difficulty caring for themselves and their children, and homelessness.
Should Pregnant Women Drink at All? Is there a safe or acceptable level of alcohol consumption for pregnant women?

Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE) and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) are caused by alcohol consumption during pregnancy. Fetal Alcohol Effects and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome are ENTIRELY preventable simply by women refraining from drinking during their pregnancy. FAS and FAE are permanent and irreversible - YES! The effects last a lifetime! No cure - no treatment just a lifetime of pain for both the child and the family and results in significant cost to your community. Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE) and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) impair a child's lifetime ability to function mentally, physically and socially and to be the best that they can be. Effects can range from mild to moderate in the case of Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE), to

"The alcohol-affected child is like a garden. Some seeds need to be planted year after year, like the carrots and the radishes. The seeds the birds carry away have to be replaced almost immediately. But there are bulbs that grow in the garden and every year they come up almost without tending. It can be too easy to see what failed to come up this year and step on the crocuses close to the ground. The important thing is to be thankful that there is a garden. It is not a wasteland."

Problem fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is a pattern of mental and physical defects which develops in some unborn babies when the mother drinks too much alcohol
Problem: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) is a pattern of mental and physical defects which develops in some unborn babies when the mother drinks too much alcohol during pregnancy. A baby born with FAS may be seriously handicapped and require a lifetime of special care. Some babies with alcohol-related birth defects, including smaller body size, lower birth weight, and other impairments, do not have all of the classic FAS symptoms. These symptoms are sometimes referred to as Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE). Researchers do not all agree on the precise distinctions between FAS and FAE cases. Cause of the Problem: Alcohol in a pregnant woman's bloodstream circulates to the fetus by crossing the placenta. There, the alcohol interferes with the ability of the fetus to receive sufficient oxygen and nourishment for normal cell development in the brain and other body organs. Possible FAS Symptoms:
  • Growth deficiencies: small body size and weight, slower than normal development and failure to catch up.
  • Skeletal deformities: deformed ribs and sternum; curved spine; hip dislocations; bent, fused, webbed, or missing fingers or toes; limited movement of joints; small head.

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
What are the implications for adoptive parents?
Patients with fetal alcohol syndrome typically have multiple handicaps and require special medical, educational, familial and community assistance. Their caretakers need medical information, peer support, financial assistance and respite care. Many children are alcohol exposed in utero but are placed as normal, healthy infants. These children may require lifelong, expensive, intensive care and intervention to reach their potential. Alcohol use and abuse affects us all. Society-at-large and the adoption community in particular must educate themselves to the very special needs of alcohol affected children. PATIENTS WITH FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME AND THEIR CARETAKERS Identifying Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS)
The potentially negative consequences of alcohol abuse during pregnancy have been suspected since biblical times. The relationship between maternal alcohol abuse during pregnancy and developmental birth defects is well-documented in psychological and medical literature. An accurate diagnosis of FAS or Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE), in which patients display partial effects of the syndrome and evidence many of the same problems as full-blown FAS, must be made by a doctor or geneticist. However, identification of children possibly affected by prenatal alcohol exposure can be carried out by professionals involved in service delivery. Characteristics of FAS/FAE
Patients with FAS are of short stature, slight build, and have a small head. Typically they are below the third to tenth percentile compared to national norms. A pattern of dysmorphic facial features characterizes these persons as well, and include 1) short eye openings; 2) a short, upturned nose; 3) smooth area between the nose and mouth; and 4) a flat midface and thin upper lip. The facial patterns made FAS patients recognizable although not grossly malformed. In addition, these patients can display other physical anomalies including 1) minor joint and limb abnormalities; 2) cardiac defects; 3) dental anomalies; and 4) vision and hearing problems.

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome in Japan
by Peggy Seo Oba, RDH, MPA, MBA
As she grew older, Hiromi had some more unusual problems. While sitting or standing, she would often bow for no reason. She had a great deal of trouble grasping objects. If a toy was handed to her, she had no problem but if she had to use her own hand/eye coordination, she would have to grab three or four times before she could successfully make contact. When playing with her feet, she would have to grab the left foot with the right hand and then pass it to her left hand before she could grab the right foot and play with both feet.
Her thumb and forefinger worked independently of the other fingers of her hand and she had difficulty manipulating objects, especially if her hand were facing downward. Her method of crawling was unusual. On one side she would crawl on her hand and knee but on the other side she would be leaning on her hand but her knee was in the air with her foot on the ground. It gave the impression of a lopsided bunny hop. Whe she was older, she also tended to run with the right side of her body slightly ahead of the left side of her body. She also could not sit in a chair without holding on to the arm or the table for balance.
Basically Hiromi was not far behind on the typical baby milestones. She turned over, crawled, sat...all might have been a little late but they occured within the normal range. The social milestones were a little different. She smiled very late at three months. The typical gurgling and giggling were never there. She was always a very quiet baby. The playing with the hands in front of the face and the general alertness of looking around and trying to participate with the family did not occur. Hiromi just sat and looked at television. It was her favorite occupation. She played with boxes and toys but without the intentness of the average child. She did not go out of her way to interact with the adults in her life. She showed very little curiosity and willingness to engage in activities with other babies and her contact with animals was limited to staring at them.

The following Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)
are caused by drinking alcohol during pregnancy:
FAS: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Symptoms include small head/body, facial characteristics, brain damage FAE: Fetal Alcohol Effects
Symptoms usually not visible, such as behavior disorders, attention deficits ARBD: Alcohol Related Birth Defects
Anomalies such as heart defects, sight/hearing problems, joint anomalies, etc. ARND: Alcohol Related Neurodevelopmental Disorders Disorders such as attention deficits, behavior disorders, obsessive/compulsive disorder, etc. FASD: Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders All of the disorders named above are contained in the spectrum. Full FAS comprises only about 10% of the spectrum. The other 90% may have fewer physical symptoms but are at greater risk for developing serious secondary conditions later. (Streissguth, 1997) FAS is the leading cause of mental retardation in western civilization.

dqmcodebase = "nav/" //script folder location Esta página en Español Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is a condition characterized by abnormal facial features, growth retardation, and central nervous system problems. It can occur if a woman drinks alcohol during pregnancy. Children with FAS may have physical disabilities and problems with learning, memory, attention, problem solving, and social/behavioral problems. When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, so does her unborn baby. There is no known safe amount of alcohol to drink while pregnant and there also does not appear to be a safe time to drink during pregnancy either. Therefore, it is recommended that women abstain from drinking alcohol at any time during pregnancy. Women who are sexually active and do not use effective birth control should also refrain from drinking because they could become pregnant and not know for several weeks or more. CDC Activities
