Study: No amount of alcohol is OK for expectant mothers

Posted:

(WAOW) – No amount of alcohol is safe for expectant mothers, according to a new study from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Other studies and some doctors say a drink or two might be OK, but the new study says to stay away from all alcohol if you are pregnant, even wine and beer.

The AAP says prenatal exposure to alcohol can damage the fetus and is the leading preventable cause of birth defects.
