“About one to two drinks per week is probably OK. But never consume more than two at a time or drink to the point of inebriation,” she says. Moritz also says she thinks “a celebratory glass of alcohol is more than likely fine -- for example, if someone is giving a toast on a holiday or at a birthday party.”

"No amount of alcohol at any point during pregnancy is safe. Once you find out you're pregnant, you should stop drinking immediately. If you find you're pregnant and have already had a couple of drinks, stop now.

Clearly alcohol use can cause major problems for the pregnant woman and her baby. While not drinking any alcohol during pregnancy is the safest choice, small amounts of alcohol early in pregnancy may be less risky to the mother's health and the health of their babies than previously believed.
