Background For over 30 years research has shown that alcohol is a teratogen that is capable of effecting the growth and development of the fetus from pre-embryonic and embryonic development through to and including fetal growth. Teratogens differ from mutagens in that they generally do not damage genes or chromosomes (Jones 2006). However a teratogen can potentially lead to miscarriage, stillbirth or varying degrees of birth defects should the fetus survive to be born.
