On this Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Day the Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) calls on all Canadians to take time to learn more about FASD.
It is estimated more than 3000 babies per year are born with FASD and currently 300,000 people are estimated to be living with it in Canada. Canadians live with FASD with countless others undiagnosed. https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/healthy-living/your-health/diseases/fetal-alcohol-spectrum-disorder.html
FASD is 100% preventable. Protect your unborn baby.
Prevention is the best cure. No amount of alcohol is safe during pregnancy.
To embrace positive change in the lives of those with FASD, ONWA joins in and supports the life-affirming chorus of I am capable, I am strong, I am resilient, I am living with FASD.
