Nobody knows how much alcohol you can drink before it harms your baby. So for that reason, abstaining from alcohol altogether during pregnancy is a good idea.

One thing we know for sure from research - a baby in the womb consumes the same percentage of alcohol as their mother does Perhaps a glass of wine doesn’t seem much to you but remember this, you’re a grown-up weighing many more times than your growing baby

We also know that alcohol affects the development of babies Children born with alcohol-related damage often suffer from deformities, have learning difficulties and are very small

So why push it? Say no when you’re pregnant; be on the safe side, and don’t drink any alcohol
