Common Myths Regarding Alcohol Use during Pregnancy

1. Less than 1 drink per day in pregnancy is okay.
2. Drinking late in pregnancy is okay and makes labor easier.

4. If I drank and have one child without FAS, I can drink and I won’t have another child with FAS.
5. If FAS doesn’t run in my family, my child won’t get FAS.
6. FAS is curable if diagnosed early.
