Foetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) is a set of physical and mental birth defects that result from a mother drinking alcohol during pregnancy. It is the most commonly preventable form of intellectual disability in the world. Most official medical and government guidelines around drinking during pregnancy recommend abstinence or low levels of consumption.
