For the expectant mother life is full of advice from those who have been there before as well as health studies and it seems that much of the information contradicts itself. The one thing that seemed consistent was warnings that all expectant mothers should abstain from alcohol while they are pregnant and breastfeeding.
But now a new study is showing that it is okay for pregnant women to Bordeaux wine glasses as long as it is carefully moderated. The study showed there was no ill effects to the child when one to two glasses of wine were drank in a week as long as it was wine only and no more than this.
The study included over 11,000 children born over a period of just over one year beginning in September 2000. But many expectant mothers will need to take this new research into consideration and weigh their own personal beliefs carefully since when it comes down to it the health of their child is at stake.
Whether trying to conceive or already pregnant it is important that each woman decide for herself if she wants to enjoy a glass of wine on occasion or choose to abstain just in case the research proofs to be wrong.
