Below you will find evidence-based information on alcohol, so that you can make the best decisions for your baby.  Right from the start.

 The American Academy of Pediatrics says no amount of alcohol during pregnancy is guaranteed to be safe.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended in February 2016 that women of reproductive age avoid alcohol entirely when they are pregnant, are attempting to become pregnant, or could become pregnant.

What is the risk?  How bad could it be?

Scientific research shows drinking alcohol at any point in your pregnancy can cause:

  • Premature Birth

  • Brain damage and problems with growth

  • Birth defects, like heart, hearing or vision problems

  • Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders

  • Low birth weight

  • Miscarriage

  • Stillbirth
