Drinking While Pregnant–Is There A Jury Still Out?

imagesAs much as I like to do drink, I had no problem changing my habits while expecting each of my three beautiful, healthy children. That being said, I was lucky to have an obstetrician who did not have a problem allowing me the occasional glass of wine (once I was past my first trimester).

Though fairly infrequent, each sip that permeated my palate was that much tastier, and I had no concern, or guilt, that a small quantity of wine would affect my baby. After all, I knew that women in European countries drank–in moderation–during pregnancies, and they too, gave birth to healthy children.

In the U.S., there is (of course) an abstinence-only position on drinking while pregnant, but interestingly, there are a number of studies that have come out with some varying evidence. Read below on ModernMom.com about some recent research and let us know, did you drink while you were pregnant?
