Development is a never ending cycle in life. Each person begins to develop from conception until passing away. Now, while most people think that development starts after birth that is incorrect. Development starts as soon as the baby is conceived. Everything that a woman carrying a baby does or takes place in will translate into the baby. The baby shares a blood flow with the mother. Drugs, even legal drugs, will go into the mother’s blood stream which will then go into the baby’s blood stream.
There is no known safe amount of alcohol a woman can drink while pregnant. Alcohol can cause life-long physical and behavioral problems in children, including fetal alcohol syndrome. FAS is a serious condition where babies can be born with mentally ill condition and may have deformation mainly in there face. When you consume alcohol during pregnancy, so does your baby, because alcohol passes
1. Describe the normal events of fetal development. How does malnutrition impair fetal development? Fetal development begins with the fertilization of an ovum; the female reproductive cell, capable of developing into a new organism upon fertilization, by a sperm; the male reproductive cell capable of fertilizing an ovum. Three stages follow fertilization: the zygote, the embryo, and the fetus (Whitney & Rolfes, 2016, p. 475). The initial product of the union of ovum and sperm; a fertilized ovum,
size, age and sex relate directly to the different stages of human development, for instance; Statistics show that infants aged one-two months old (fed on breast-milk) ideally take on the following amounts of nutrients per day as an estimated intake; boys 526 (kcal), and girls 478 (kcal). At four months old soft foods are introduced, steadily increasing the nutrients for the rest of the infancy stage. The next stage of development is childhood, at one-three years

The substance that are abused include caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, steroids, stimulants, depressants, heroin, ANd cocaine. Substance abuse and dependence were first described as disease process in the 1960s with the introduction of Jellinek’s work on alcoholism. Dependence on alcohol and other drugs is now accepted and is classified as a psychiatric disorder.
Parents are the most important people for their children’s development and success. However, there are increasing number of parents who are addicted to alcohol and other illicit drugs in the United States. According to combined results from 2000 and 2001 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA), it has been estimated that 10% of children (more than seven million) have at least one parent who is dependent on alcohol or illicit drugs, and that 6% have at least one parent who is in need of treatment

In the United States, one in 500 children reported are diagnosed with FAS. On the Indian reservations the numbers are much higher, they are one in 99 children. Approximately one-half of the cases of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome go unrecognized. FAS affects more newborns every year than Down syndrome, cystic fibrosis, spina bifida, and Sudden Infant Death
