Angelene’s story


Angelene’s son lives with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). In this video, she talks about alcohol dependence, her son’s FASD diagnosis and her life now as a passionate FASD advocate. 

Every moment matters when you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy. Support is available if you’d like to make a change. 

If you think a child or young person in your care might have FASD, talk to your GP. If needed, they can provide a referral to a paediatrician or FASD-informed health care provider about assessment and diagnosis.
