March of Dimes Statement on Women and Alcohol Consumption
March of Dimes Statement on Women and Alcohol Consumption:
No level of alcohol use during pregnancy has been proven safe.
The March of Dimes recommends that pregnant women do not drink any alcohol—including beer, wine, wine coolers and hard liquor— throughout their pregnancy and while nursing.
In addition, because women often do not know they are pregnant for a few months, women who may be pregnant or those who are attempting to become pregnant should abstain from alcoholic beverages.
