Question: Drinking alcohol while pregnant… is it safe?
The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists does not recommend drinking any form of alcohol while pregnant. Since no one really knows what effects limited amounts alcohol has on the fetus, it is better to just abstain.
Some doctors do give their pregnant patients permission to have an occasional glass of wine, as long as they accompany it with food to help lessen alcohol absorption by the fetus. For more information, you should consult your doctor to see what his/her recommendation might be.
