Can you drink when you're pregnant?
It is not advisable to drink alcohol while pregnant. While some doctors say that light and occasional drinking is likely to leave the foetus unharmed, many doctors insist on cutting out alcohol completely for the duration of the pregnancy. Drinking while pregnant is not recommended as it can cause birth defects in the foetus.
