What is FASD Awareness Day?Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Awareness Day originated in Canada with the first FASD Day taking place on 9th September 1999. This date was chosen as it is was the 9th day of the 9th month of the year, to represent the 9 months of pregnancy and raise awareness of the importance of having an alcohol-free pregnancy for the full nine months to prevent FASD. Since then the campaign has gathered global recognition with many countries now taking part in activities to raise awareness of FASD and the prevention of alcohol exposed pregnancies.
