There are many alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs in California, like Cliff Side Malibu, sponsor of this post. Alcohol (wine, beer or liquor) is the leading known preventable cause of mental and physical birth defects in the United States. Every year in the USA, 1 in every 750 infants is born with a pattern of physical, developmental, and functional problems referred to as fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), while another 40,000 are born with fetal alcohol effects (FAE).
There has been much speculation about whether or not Brittany Spears' son has fetal alcohol syndrome. For that baby it is too late to change his life. However, Nicole could still straighten up and have perfectly normal baby.
I pray that she does.
