Hi mrspaulus1996,

Fetal alcohol syndrome is caused by the mother's drinking alcohol during pregnancy. The only way that your baby will have fetal alcohol effects is if you drink alcohol while pregnant -- it is not hereditary or genetic. Here is some more information on the causes of fetal alcohol syndrome if you would like to read more.

Best wishes,
Atti
