18% Pregnant Women Endangering Infants By Drinking During Pregnancy
Date:9/16/2013

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) September 16, 2013

According to an article on 9/11 by Medical News Today titled, Nearly 18 percent of pregnant women drink alcohol in early stages of pregnancy, during their first trimester of pregnancy, approximately 18 percent of women consumed alcohol within the past month according to a new report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Women should never drink while pregnant. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy will increase a woman's risk of their baby developing a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), a group of conditions that can cause physical, behavioral and learning problems - some of which may have lifelong repercussions. They can lower the risk for their infants when they stop drinking alcohol immediately after finding out they are pregnant.

As sad as it is when someone is suffering from a substance addiction, it is even more so when an innocent child is exposed to their mother's dependency. The importance of seeking professional counseling and assistance from a certified detox center cannot be understated. A premier detox facility, Harbor Village has developed safe, effective individualized plans to address drug addiction.

As posted in the article, Nearly 18 percent of pregnant women drink alcohol in early stages of pregnancy, Frances Harding, director of SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Prevention said, “Although most women understand the risks of using alcohol while pregnant, much more needs to be done to reach out to women during the earliest stages of pregnancy. All prospective parents, health care practitioners, and all women of childbearing age, need to be aware of the importance of not drinking alcohol if a woman is pregnant or considering becoming pregnant."
