Drinking alcohol during pregnancy is dangerous

Nov 24, 2014
Drinking alcohol during pregnancy is harmful to your baby. It can lead to the serious health conditions like miscarriage, preterm birth, stillbirth and even lifelong health conditions in the baby. The amount of alcohol you drink enters the baby’s body too. It goes through the blood into the placenta as well as the umbilical cord. The adult body can break down alcohol, but the fetal body is not prepared for it as yet. It leads to fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) as well fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). So, prevent adverse effects to the mental and physical development of the baby by avoiding alcohol completely during pregnancy.
