Alcohol in Pregnancy

Posted on March 15th, 2018

If you are pregnant or think you could become pregnant, the safest approach is not to drink alcohol at all, to keep risks to your baby to a minimum. Drinking in pregnancy can lead to long-term harm to the baby, with the more you drink the greater the risk.

• All alcohol a woman drinks while pregnant reaches the growing baby

• In the womb, the baby grows and develops every day during pregnancy, so ANY alcohol drunk while pregnant carries the risk of affecting the baby’s development

• The only way to remove the risks from alcohol harm is to avoid drinking alcohol if you are thinking of becoming pregnant, trying for a baby or if you are pregnant
