Summary Is alcohol ever ok for expectant mothers? This week, three young people open up to a studio audience about what it's like to have Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Two of them can barely read or write. One has trouble speaking. One battles constant feelings of white hot anger. All their mothers drank during pregnancy. Drinking when pregnant can lead to a whole host of physical, behavioural and developmental problems known as Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). Many pregnant women have out-of-date information about alcohol. Previous guidelines used to say that women could drink up to seven standard drinks per week. That was reduced to zero in 2009, but experts fear the message isn't getting out. And about half of all pregnancies are unplanned, meaning women might drink in the crucial early weeks of pregnancy and not realise the potential damage they're doing
