Alcohol and Pregnancy

Congratulations on Taking This First Step!

The Whole Nine provides vital information about the effects of alcohol on pregnancy. We ensure all communications are kept confidential.

This site offers resources about alcohol and pregnancy and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD).

During Pregnancy:

  • There is no safe amount of alcohol to drink… not even a little!
  • There is no safe type of alcohol to drink … not even wine or beer!
  • There is no safe time during pregnancy to drink… not even before the woman knows she is pregnant!

It is estimated that as many as 1 out of every 20 babies born will have damage from prenatal alcohol exposure.

Alcohol use during pregnancy is a leading preventable cause of intellectual disabilities and other birth defects.

All major medical associations in the United States agree that no amount of any type of alcohol during pregnancy is known to be safe.
