Would You Drink for Two?
Blogger Melanie at Parenting.com confesses that she sipped some vino more than once during her own pregnancies: "I didn't drink nightly, or even weekly, and never did I get drunk," she writes. "And while I know that complete abstention from alcohol is the official position of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, I also quietly received the okay for an occasional glass of wine from a number of medical professionals whose advice I sought."
Are expectant mothers ditching the playbook, as written by ACOG? Probably not altogether, but the New York Post does report that more pregnant women are raising the glass -- without a side helping of guilt.
According to that newspaper, a study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology reveals that babies whose mothers drank one or two alcoholic beverages during their pregnancies had no additional risk of cognitive defects than those whose moms abstained.
