Dear Jola
Foetal alcohol syndrome is a risk when one uses alcohol when pregnant, but more for mothers that drink heavily every day on a long term basis. Alcohol causes low birthweight and can cause varied degrees of brain damage although the risk is low if this was just moderate drinking for a short period of time.
