I am so happy that y'all decided to give FASD a platform! It is sooo frustrating to see mothers to be drink.. Even if it's one glass of alcohol.. They all say: 'one glass won't hurt', but it can, it does! Even here on YouTube I have seen it happen.. It hurts my heart that the mother would risk the health of her child for her 'one glass'.. And later on in life they wonder why their child has difficulties in life with something.. If you're pregnant.. STAY THE FUDGE AWAY FROM ALCOHOL.. It is your duty to protect your child, even in the womb! Besides all that.. IT'S ONLY FOR 9 MONTHS.. Damage to your child done by that 'one glass' is for life..
What a beautiful woman inside and out. This has been one of the beat Feature Fridays I've witnessed on TMV! I hope you reach high and achieve your dreams of helping these children. My heart aches for all the mothers and babies going through this.
Such an amazing video, my husband has FASD and so does my step son so i had to be extremely careful not drinking at all while i was pregnant with my son, thank you for the beautiful video as it touches my family so closely, my husband had to get growth injections from an early age as he was so small and he is on DSP because of it but he is the happiest human being ever so it doesnt affect him a whole lot now just with minor things
Thank you for sharing - I have heard of FASD, but do not know anyone who has it or whose children have it. This means I haven't ever researched/learned anymore about it. I'm heart broken to hear Noah explain how it makes his life so difficult. THIS should be a video every pregnant woman sees --- It may not keep them all from drinking but for those who do not -- Hallelujah!!
Its incredible how many women think its okay to drink any amount of alcohol when pregnant. I'm a birthworker and i've met many people in the birth world who have recommended "a drink" to pregnant mothers to help with "nerves" or to calm contractions. Alcohol is a teratogen and should never be introduced in pregnancy or even during contraception to be the safest. You do not need alcohol to survive your pregnancy, or your motherhood, or your life. It's goal is to alter your brain, so imagine what it has the potential to do to a developing brain.
I’m so proud of Judy! I know you’ve been so passionate about this for so long and I’m so proud of you for not giving up on your vision! You’re such a passionate woman and I’m so grateful we have crossed paths!!!!
I personally believe that instead of saying that FASD is 100% preventable you should say “ no amount of alcohol during pregnancy is safe “. FASD is something that isn’t talked about a lot because of the stigmas around it but it needs to start being recognized because it is so important to have information about FASD and how it can effect the person in many ways
how much is too much? im not a massive drinker if at all (maybe some port while cooking christmas dinner or baileys in cheesecake). people in some parts of the world say its ok to drink one glass of wine with dinner on the occasion and that doesnt seem to have ill effect. im just wondering at what level would it actually do damage? are we talking benders every week or the occasional night out? and yes of course its better to not al all, but im just wondering.
+Odette T I agree! like I said in my comment, there is no scientific basis for what exact amount would be too much, which is why many doctors prefer to advise zero alcohol. But some say minimal amounts are ok, but how much is just a bet, even doctors don't know for sure.
As far as I've read (but, of course check with your own doctor) no alcohol is a safe amount during pregnancy, or if you're trying to conceive. I'm sure a small amount mixed into a dessert wouldn't do harm but it's an easy thing to avoid and 9 months really does fly by. But if you really "need" one there are alcohol-free beers, wines etc that you could have instead.
I think the issue is that there is no scientific evidence and no way of knowing which amount of alcohol is too much and that is why in many countries there are campaigns that are advising zero tolerance just to be safe. So it's up to the individual to decide how much they are willing to drink, everyone decides where they set the bar. I found that since I don't know what amount potentially hurts the baby, it was not a big deal to stay away from alcohol for 9 months. Now I enjoy my wine etc. even more than before:)
Its unpridictable and its a case by case thing. What effects one woman might not affect another, whether it be a once off drink or many. Some have had big nights out with no effects whilst others can drink way less and their baby may have FAS. Its the unpredictability that makes it important to avoid alcohol completely. Better safe than sorry kind of thing x
God bless you lady for all you do for Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. I am so angry with women and girls who drink when carrying a baby inside them. The females that do this are ruining their lives but, more important the lives of unborn babies forever.
Hey Noah!! You are so inspiring! You keep your head up and don't ever forget that He has made you for a special reason. You are going to change the world, my friend. I can feel it... Prayers, love, and good juju are coming straight from my heart, right from my soul to yours. If ever you see the number 4, know at that exact moment love and joy and encouragement are coming your way. Long-distance highfive my friend✋🤘👊🤙 Kris🤗
There is no safe amount if you cannot make choices to keep children safe before they’re born I have to question whether you will be able to after. Judging? Maybe kids not yet born will be saved from this by us not enabling this . No amount is safe so don’t
It's so complicated because many of these mothers are battling addiction and have no support systems in place. It's a systemic problem really. I don't blame my children's birth mothers. I hurt for their losses and I hurt for my children's loss and now their permanent brain damage :(
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
