Sources

I promise to try my best to legally cite any information I present that is not solely opinion or ramble. However, copyright laws prohibit me from copying full text. Since I rely heavily on medical journals and full-text studies that are only accessible with a subscription to Health & Medicine Week (3 grand a year OUCH) or through my school’s student-access-only libraries, most of my sources will be from those… But I’ll do all I can to keep a good faith in my words! My sources are cited in APA 6th edition.

“Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is a congenital syndrome caused by maternal alcohol consumption during pregnancy and is entirely preventable by abstinence from alcohol drinking during this time. Little is known about the prevalence of FAS and maternal alcohol consumption during pregnancy in Western countries.”

“Maternal alcohol exposure during pregnancy is significantly under-ascertained. Given the severe risks to the fetus from heavy prenatal alcohol exposure, assessment and recording of alcohol use should be routinely undertaken in maternity and other health settings.’
