Many women are unaware of the consequences of drinking during pregnancy. Some women mistakenly believe that an occasional glass of wine is safe for the baby, or that wine and beer is not even alcohol. In many cases, the woman may be suffering from alcoholism. She may need to know what effects alcohol can have on the baby. She also may need help getting into treatment. In such cases, you should contact a treatment professional at a local addiction center for advice on how to help. You can find treatment resources in the NOFAS Resource Directory.
