IT TAKES COMMUNITY: TOGETHER WE CAN PREVENT FASD
Each year International FASD Awareness Day is celebrated on the 9th of September, with the whole month often dedicated to FASD Awareness.
Community events to mark FASD Awareness Day take place around the world with communities traditionally pausing at 9:09am, the 9th minute of the 9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month of the year, representing the nine months of pregnancy.
This time provides an opportunity to pause, reflect, share the prevention message and support alcohol free pregnancy across the globe.
Mark your calendar and join us for this year’s event.
SUPPORT A DRY9
Pregnant women hear it all the time to relax and have a drink – a little can’t do any harm. But that’s not true – no amount of alcohol has been proven safe to drink while pregnant, and for many, it’s just not worth the risk.
