Limited amounts of alcohol during pregnancy do not harm children
Date:6/21/2012

" says Ulrik Schiler Kesmodel.

These new findings may also send a message to the midwives and general practitioners who provide the women with health advice during pregnancy. We know that the pregnancy advice provided by the health professionals tend to vary, and this variation has been confirmed by former studies, according to Ulrik Schiler Kesmodel.

"Approximately half of the midwives and the general practitioners follow the recommendations from the Danish Health and Medicines Authority and tell the women not to drink alcohol at all during pregnancy, while the other half takes a more relaxed approach and tell the pregnant women that it will not harm the baby to have an occasional beer or a glass of wine. This is obviously very confusing for the pregnant women," says Ulrik Schiler Kesmodel.

He hopes that the new research results may ease the ongoing discussions and worries as to whether small amounts of alcohol may affect the unborn child. If a woman says that she consumes for example only 1 drink a week, Health professionals should instead focus on the factors that have been proven to affect the mother and the health of the child, in particular smoking and obesity.
