Hidden Harm: Australia’s Drinking Mums

101 East meets the mothers and children living with the tragic consequences of drinking alcohol when pregnant.

Alcohol is a big part of the Australian culture across every region and every social class. But for Australian mothers this could be a disaster.  

The latest research shows there is no safe limit for drinking when pregnant. All it takes is a few drinks at the wrong stage of the pregnancy for the mother’s unborn baby to suffer permanent brain damage.  

101 East meets families who are now living with the tragic consequences, guilt and fear from foetal alcohol exposure.
