Alcohol consumption during pregnancy can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome, a condition that often results in birth defects, mental problems, and behavioral problems. The condition is irreversible, but it is also completely preventable. If a woman does not drink alcohol while she is pregnant, her child will not develop fetal alcohol syndrome.
 
Characteristics of the condition include abnormal facial features and growth deficiency. Over time, these children are at risk for psychiatric problems, criminal behavior, and incomplete education. Treatment involves a variety of psychological, behavioral, and educational approaches.
