The Most Frequently Asked Questions About Pregnancy, Answered
Can pregnant women drink wine?
We have covered the coffee lovers now let us cover the mamas-to-be who love wine o’clock. Wondering whether pregnant women can drink their favorite glass of red or rosÃ© is one of the common pregnancy questions. A Harvard Health Blog from 2018 says, “Drinking a little alcohol early in pregnancy may be okay.” That is contrast from a lot of studies that have said to avoid alcohol completely. “While not drinking any alcohol during pregnancy is the safest choice, small amounts of alcohol early in pregnancy may be less risky to the mother’s health and the health of their babies than previously believed,” the blog reported on the findings in the journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Minimal alcohol during the first trimester doesn’t appear to impact birth weight or blood pressure, according to the report.
