Drinking while pregnant: now it’s ok?

I only got grief once for drinking when I was pregnant – it was a glass of wine on my birthday – but I’ve heard and seen of many instances of strangers telling women they shouldn’t drink because they are pregnant.  Well now they are saying that 1.5 units of alcohol a day is ok!  Again.  (One of my friends was told to have a glass a wine a day when she was pregnant – her kids are now in their 30s and doing fine.)

We’ll see what they say next year … in the meantime, relax, and let the pregnant woman have a glass of wine.  Believe me, she is way more worried about her baby’s health than you will ever be!
