Foetal alcohol mothers 'should be held responsible'
It is estimated that 6,000 babies are born every year in the UK with foetal alcohol syndrome because their mothers drank alcohol when pregnant.
The condition is a form of structural brain damage.
One grandfather who cares for his grandson with foetal alcohol syndrome wants to change the law.
He thinks pregnant women who drink and damage their child's health should be held criminally responsible.
Some people also think the government's current advice on alcohol consumption for pregnant women is confusing.
But the Department of Health says there is plenty of information already available for pregnant mothers.
