These Mommy blogs confuse me :S
Ive been reading a lot of things on some Mommy blogs and apparently there are some studies out there that says drinking just little bit of wine is actually ok in pregnancy. I don�t know what to think so I thought I shud come here and ask a professional. i want to be really healthy for my baby but I don�t wanna give up everything if I don�t have to you know?

Hi there! Thanks for your question. We commend you on your dedication to having a healthy pregnancy for your baby! It’s true there are some mixed messages and controversy regarding the subject of alcohol during pregnancy. To be on the safe side, Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) recommends drinking no alcohol at all during pregnancy. There is no safe amount or safe time to drink alcohol during pregnancy or even when planning a pregnancy. This is because when a woman drinks any type of alcohol when she is pregnant, there is a high risk of giving birth to a baby with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). You can read more on FASD here. When a mother drinks alcohol during pregnancy, the alcohol reaches the baby through the mother’s bloodstream very quickly. The effect of alcohol on a developing baby can vary, depending on the health of the mother, the amount she drank, and her pattern of drinking (for example, binge-drinking is found to be particularly harmful). As you know, making healthy choices is especially important during pregnancy. In addition to abstaining from alcohol, eating well can give your baby the right nutrients to grow and develop. Visit our nutrition and exercise pages on our website to find some tips on eating healthy and taking care of your body. You can also check out PHAC’s fact sheet, The Sensible Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy, which includes more information on alcohol and pregnancy. Update us on your progress! Good luck! ~Pregnets Team
