Organisation for Anti-Convulsant Syndrome (OACS)


OACS was established in January 1999 and became a registered Charity in 2006.

OACS is a support group for those who were born with a Fetal Anti-Convulsant syndrome (FACS) and their carers.  It was created by those that love and care for those affected.  Today OACs is proactive in their approach, determined to make a real difference in the lives of those affected and of those that care for them.

FACS is caused when a fetus is adversely prenatally exposed to anti-convulsant medication.  Today it is not known why some people are susceptible and others are not, so it is important to seek advice from a medical professional before getting pregnant. 

OACS provide information and support for those prenatally affected by AED’s, their carers and the professionals who support them.
OACS promotes awareness and an understanding of OACS.
OACs is proactive in their approach, creating initiatives to enhance our present understanding of FACS and its affects.
