Pregnancy & Addiction [INFOGRAPHIC]

Published by on Sunday, February 11, 2018

In this blog post, we share an infographic titled Pregnancy and Addiction. This infographic discusses Fatal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD). Up to 6,000 babies are born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder each year. FASD is completely preventable.

This informative infographic aims to shed light on FASD. The infographic also serves as a stark warning to women who may feel it is acceptable to drink alcohol whilst pregnancy.

Some of the key highlights of this infographic include:

  • One in eight pregnant women report alcohol use (at least one drink a day) during their pregnancy
  • One in thirty women admit to binge drinking during pregnancy
  • Up to 6,000 babies a year are born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD)
  • FASD is completely preventable. If you do not drink whilst pregnant, the foetus cannot develop FASD
  • The symptoms of FASD

The infographic also includes facts about smoking and pregnancy. For instance, in the US, there are around 820,000 women smokers at any one time.

The infographic also states that almost all drugs pass from the mother to the foetus. Thus, consuming drugs and alcohol whilst pregnancy is tantamount to giving these substances to a new-born child.

The infographic contains many more startling facts.

Without further ado, here’s the infographic:
