No. FASD cannot be “passed on” from a mother to a child like having brown eyes can be passed on. The only way for women with an FASD to have a child with an FASD is for that woman to consume alcohol when she is pregnant. Also, just because a woman has one child with an FASD does not mean she will have another with an FASD. As long as a pregnant woman does not consume alcohol, her child will not be born with FASD.
