Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This book tells the stories of eight New Zealand women who gave birth to children suffering from fetal alcohol syndrome or fetal alcohol effects (now known collectively as fetal alcohol spectrum disorder). The struggles of these women to raise their disabled children in a society where everything from the legal system to education can be unsympathetic to their needs makes absorbing reading. This is an excellent resource for women wanting to conceive, general practitioners, nurses, students and others in the fields of health, medicine and social work.

Includes bibliographical references (93-107).
