Pregnancy and drinking: Is it OK?

For most pregnant ladies, enjoying a drink at the local bar isn’t an option, or is it?

A study just released in the british medical journal found that when moms consumed a moderate amount of alcohol, it had no adverse effect on her child’s balance years later…a marker for brain development.

What’s a moderate amount? Three to seven glasses of alcohol a week.

But don’t expect that same recommendation in the United States.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says studies have consistently shown even a little bit of alcohol is risky.
Their advice? Don’t chance it.
