Can I drink alcohol while I am pregnant?
When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, it quickly reaches her fetus. The same amount of alcohol that is in your blood is in your baby’s blood. There is no known safe level of alcohol for a fetus. Drinking alcohol at any time during pregnancy can cause problems for your unborn baby. The more a pregnant woman drinks, the greater the danger to her baby. Alcohol also increases the risk of miscarriage or a preterm delivery.
