At the NSLC, we take pride in being the responsible steward of beverage alcohol and cannabis by helping our customers make an informed choice. That’s why we celebrate responsible decisions – like an alcohol-free pregnancy.
FASD – or Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder – is a brain injury that can occur when an unborn baby is exposed to alcohol in the womb. This lifelong disorder has potentially far reaching effects, including physical, mental, behavioural and learning disabilities.
If you are pregnant or are planning a pregnancy, we encourage you to learn more about FASD by visiting the links below:
