Women who continue to drink during pregnancy put their baby at risk for being born with Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE) and/or Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) which is a pattern of mental and physical defects during fetus development during pregnancy. Babies born with FAE/FAS may have damage to the central nervous system and brain which can result in mental retardation as well as facial abnormalities.
Babies born to alcohol addicted mothers can have a multitude of problems including poor growth patterns, problems with hearing and sight, attention and learning deficits, behavioral issues, problems with sleeping patterns and eating irregularities. In many cases, these babies need additional medical and learning care for the rest of their lives.
