What happens to unborn babies if their mother is an alcoholic?
The effects of alcohol can include:
- Distinctive facial features. A child may have a small head, flat face, and narrow eye openings, for instance. This gets more obvious by age 2 or 3 years.
- Growth problems. Children who were exposed to alcohol before they were born may be smaller than other children of the same age.
- Learning and behavior problems.
- Birth defects
- Problems bonding or feeding as a newborn

It depends on the gestational age of the fetus. If the fetus is 27 weeks or later an emergency delivery of the baby can be done to try and save it. A baby could survive earlie…r than 27 weeks. With each week survival rates increase. . Otherwise, the fetus will die along with the mother because her body is what is keeping the fetus alive.

Yes, alcohol can harm an unborn baby.
The baby can have something called Rubella Syndrome if the mother has rubella in her first trimester. Quote from the Related Link below:. The classic triad for congenital rub…ella syndrome is:. Sensorineural deafness - (58% of patients) . Eye abnormalities - especially cataract and microphthalmia (43% of patients) . Congenital heart disease - especially patent ductus arteriosus (50% of patients) . Other manifestations of CRS may include:. spleen, liver or bone marrow problems (some of which may disappear shortly after birth) . mental retardation . small head size (microcephaly) . eye defects . low birth weight . thrombocytopenic purpura (presents as a characteristic "blueberry muffin" rash) . hepatomegaly . micrognathia
Alcohol abuse by a pregnant woman can cause her baby to be born with fetal alcohol syndrome. The baby can have lifelong problems with both mental and physical development.
Well, to be brief - they are usually ground up in the disposal and sent into the sewer system. These days, they are often cut up so that the valuable pieces (brain, spine, tes…tes, ovaries, eyes) can be sold to pharmaceutical companies for fetal stem cell research. Despite the fact that this research has gone absolutely nowhere over decades now, it remains a very lucrative industry thanks to perpetual positive media coverage. Since the tissue is more valuable, some aborted babies are kept alive like lobsters. Sometimes, they get caught: http://www.jillstanek.com/bio.html Here's some good info: www.stemcellfacts.org
Nothing necessarily happens to the mother. Just a lot of grief and she also has to get the dead baby out of her uterus or she could get an infection.
I'm not sure if you should be having a baby if you need to ask this question. Of course alcohol can harm an unborn baby. What you eat and drink is what the baby eats and drink…s. There is a plethora of information on the Internet through a simple Google search. But I advise you or anyone else asking this question legitimately to see a doctor and ask him what can harm an unborn baby. Alcohol, smoking, illicit drugs and even some medications can harm an unborn baby very easily. The results can be disastrous from miscarriages to birth deformations, etc.
They're deformed or they may web die!
No, it will never get to the fetus.
In the uterus, the placenta and cord attaches from the mother to the fetus, delivering all nutrients directly from the mother's blood stream to the fetus. If the mother is on …drugs or drinks alcohol, that also passes from the mother's blood stream to her fetus.

Everything affects the fetus in vitro. There is a growing human developing and the fetus develops in a pattern or stages. What the mother takes in so does the baby and if it s…one thing harmful to the body the baby maybe harmed as well. The umbilical cord is like a life line between baby and mom. It is up to the mother to make sure that she has the best possible baby she can. Drugs, alcohol and smoking harm the baby and changes development of the baby. One area that is affected the most is the central nervous system and the brain.
