Alcohol

If you drink alcohol when
you’re pregnant, the alcohol
crosses the placenta into
the bloodstream of the
unborn baby and could
interfere with how it grows
and develops.

Binge drinking is the
most damaging to you
and your baby.

Please be honest
with your midwife when
she asks you about your
alcohol intake as well as how you drink, for example
if you have a glass of wine every night with your evening
meal or if you drink 2 bottles of wine every Saturday night!

This information will enable your midwife
to advise and support
you with maintaining
a healthy lifestyle.
