QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am in my fifth month of pregnancy, and I am very worried that my baby will be F.A.S.D because I drank alcohol before I found out I was pregnant.

I found out I was pregnant after a month. Should I be so worried?

ANSWER

Usually if a woman completely quits drinking that early, her baby is ok. Let's assume that will happen in your case! Relax and enjoy your baby, it's getting to the fun part.
