Did you drink a glass of wine or two while pregnant? I admit to having a few sips during my first pregnancy and even a few glasses during my second. Both of my kids are bright, athletic (well, as much as they can be with my couch-potato genes!) and happy.
Well, the topic of pregnant women and whether or not they should drink alcohol is still a hot topic. Some women choose to abstain altogether while others take a more European approach and have a glass of wine or a bottle of beer once or twice each week.
Is it? Or is it really just a woman’s choice in the same way that choosing to eat broccoli or Cheetos is a pregnant mom’s choice? As long as we’re not talking about binge drinking that could affect her or her baby’s health, can’t we assume that a woman knows her own body and can decide what is acceptable for her and her baby?
