International FASD Awareness Day

09 Sep 2020


9:09am on the 9th day of the 9th month is observed every year in recognition of the importance of being alcohol free for the nine months of a pregnancy

There is no known safe amount of alcohol which can be consumed during pregnancy and it is the responsibility of the whole community to support alcohol free pregnancies. Around the world, the month of September is recognised as FASD month to raise awareness about FASD and the importance of an alcohol free pregnancy. Community events to mark FASD Awareness Day provide opportunities to raise awareness about the risks of prenatal alcohol exposure, to support pregnant women and to share this prevention message around the world. NOFASD Australia has been involved in this campaign since the very beginning! Click here to read more about the history of International FASD Awareness Day
