In brief: See below

Fetal valproate syndrome occurs when a baby develops signs and symptoms as a result of an exposure to valproic acid during fetal development.
Fetal exposure to valproic acid is associated with 2 to 3 times the general population risk for birth defects. See: http://rarediseases.Info.Nih.Gov/gard/condition/5447/fetal_valproate_syndrome.Aspx.
