Formerly known as MOFAS: Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Exciting News
from MOFAS

If you're looking for the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) you have come to the right place. We have some exciting news about our organization. We have a new name! MOFAS has officially been renamed Proof Alliance. Our mission remains the same: to prevent prenatal alcohol exposure and to improve the quality of life for people living with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).

Why PR%F

We now have the proof that prenatal alcohol exposure is a leading cause of brain injury in children. We have the proof that FASD is 100% preventable and people living with an FASD can reach 100% of their potential.

Why Alliance?

We seek to build powerful alliances with people with an FASD, their families, legislators, experts in the field, new partners, and community members to bring awareness, research, and services to this field.

What's Next?

Proof Alliance is rebranding, expanding, and we're moving! We have a new logo, website, and prevention campaign to help change the norms around drinking during pregnancy. And in May 2019 we will be moving to a stand-alone building. Proof Alliance commits to the people of Minnesota and we will continue to develop transformative programs to help Minnesotans impacted by FASD.

Love Is In The Air

valentine's day mocktails

Love is in the air and we wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day. Before getting wrapped up in the whirl of roses, chocolate, and champagne, is there a chance you could possibly be pregnant right now? If you are pregnant or might be pregnant, you’ll want to hold off on that glass of champagne. Many women might not know they are pregnant until 4-6 weeks after conception and if they continue to drink alcohol they could harm their developing baby and not even know it. Drinking alcohol can cause a range of lifelong physical, behavioral, and intellectual disabilities known as Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, there is no safe amount and no safe kind of alcohol a woman can drink when she’s pregnant. Find out what you should know before you become pregnant. One of the safest things you can do for you and your baby is not drink any alcohol. But who says you can’t splurge on some delicious mocktails on Valentine’s Day? Remember 049 – zero alcohol for nine months. Follow MOFAS on Pinterest for other fun mocktails. Enjoy!
