MOFAS is committed to preventing prenatal alcohol exposure. Whether you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant, MOFAS wants all women to get a consistent message about the risks of drinking alcohol during pregnancy. There is no safe level of alcohol during pregnancy. Remember 049 – zero alcohol for nine months.
Public Awareness Campaigns
Our newest 049 campaign, “Good Things Come to Those Who Wait” is a message for all moms-to-be. View our new campaign.
Each year, MOFAS participates in and sponsors dozens of events where women of all races, socioeconomic status, and in large and small communities across Minnesota can get accurate information on the danger of drinking alcohol during pregnancy. At these events, MOFAS staff and MOFAS FASD Prevention Grantees share the 049 prevention message through fun SWAG like chapsticks, baby onesies, window clings and buttons that remind women that there is no safe level of alcohol during pregnancy. Find community events in your area that are promoting the 049 message here.
