Alcohol use during pregnancy can cause fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs), which are physical, behavioral, and intellectual disabilities that last a lifetime. There is no known safe amount of alcohol – even beer or wine – that is safe for a woman to drink at any stage of pregnancy.
About 3.3 million women between the ages of 15 and 44 years are at risk of exposing their developing baby to alcohol because they are drinking, sexually active, and not using birth control to prevent pregnancy, according to the latest CDC Vital Signs report. Also, about 3 in 4 women who want to get pregnant as soon as possible report drinking alcohol.
