Promoting Alcohol Free Pregnancies

Welcome to the North Carolina Fetal Alcohol Prevention Program (FASDinNC).  This program strives to prevent alcohol exposed pregnancies by providing training, education and resources to women of childbearing age and the professionals that serve them.

FASDinNC  is a proud affiliate of the National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (NOFAS) and works with affiliates across the nation to increase awareness of Fetal Alcohol Specturm Disorders (FASDs).  FASDinNC is also a partner in the national MotherToBaby program and promotes MotherToBaby NC, a service dedicated to providing women, their partners, health care professionals and the public with information about the impact of alcohol, medications and other exposures during pregnancy and while breast feeding.

FASDinNC is housed at Mission Hospital’s Fullerton Genetics Center, the only interdisciplinary FASD pediatric clinic in NC.  The clinic provides diagnostics and support to improve the outcomes for individuals with an FASD and their families.
