Some may have seen recent reports that some alcohol isn’t bad for the unborn child. Many people take these reports as the truth without looking into all the facts.
Alcohol is NOT healthy during pregnancy no matter how much or how little you drink. Any amount of alcohol will affect your baby and can lead you down a path of alcohol addiction.
Contrary to what might be expected, children of women who drank lightly during pregnancy were one-third less likely to have behavioral problems and scored higher on cognitive tests than children of women who abstained.
For example, mothers in the study who drank lightly had twice the family income and education than their abstaining counterparts. Both factors affect parenting and environmental stress levels.
Drug addiction treatment centers offer drug and alcohol education to families of people who are addicted.
