The National Fetal Anticonvulsant Syndrome Association provides advice and support to families and health workers involved with children who have been affected by anticonvulsant drugs prescribed for their mothers during pregnancy. The major problems encountered include spina bifida, cleft palate, congenital heart disease, kidney abnormalities, and limb defects. There is also an increased incidence of minor birth defects, including learning problems and speech delay. The association works to increase awareness of these various problems, to put families in touch with each other, to encourage families in their quest for a firm diagnosis, to ensure that future mothers are made aware of risks, and to promote and participate in research.
