The alcohol will pass through to the baby, which can cause premature delivery, birth defects, or even a miscarriage. Alcohol can damage the brain cells and limit the flow of oxygen to developing tissues. This scares me that you would not know this answer. FAS (Fetal alcohol syndrome) is very harmful to your baby. It can cause mental retardation and may other health problems that effect the child for life. Drinking small amounts of alcohol once a month or very infrequently is okay. But, to be completely safe, and keep your baby safe, I would obstain from all alcohol dring pregnancy.
