Every Moment Matters resources in support of alcohol-free pregnancies
Did you know – Nearly one in four people aren’t aware alcohol should be avoided altogether during pregnancy. Any alcohol consumed when pregnant passes directly to the developing baby and can damage their brain, body, and organs. It can also lead to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
As the peak body for parents, caregivers and individuals impacted by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, NOFASD Australia has developed targeted resources to support people involved in out-of-home care as they play a central role in recognising and supporting the needs of children and young people with FASD. When FASD goes unrecognised, children and young people can be left without the right support, misunderstood, or even blamed for behaviours caused by their disability. Access the resources here.
These resources have been created as part of Every Moment Matters, a national awareness campaign developed by the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE), endorsed and funded by the Australian Government. Please help spread the word by sharing this information with your colleagues, family, and friends. Learn more about the campaign here.
