Alchohol Misuse during pregnancy

Fetal Alcohol Sydrome and Psychological factors influenced by mothers prenatal drinking habits. 

Abbey Hughes's insight:

Although it is common knowledge that alcohol consumption during pregnancy can affect a babies development, there is still a wide number of children who suffer from fetal alcohol syndrome today.

 

Although the effects may be obvious from birth, such as stunted growth, limb malformation and damage to the central nervous system, there are many children who do not appear to develop any signs of aversion  to the alcohol misuse until later on.
