Is a glass of wine a night ok when you’re pregnant?

You’ve probably heard the saying that ‘one glass of red wine a night is good for your heart’, but does that also apply when you’re pregnant?

Vanessa Scarf from the Centre for Midwifery, Child and Family Health from the University of Technology Sydney says there is very little research into how much alcohol is ‘ok’ during the term of pregnancy, leaving many of these questions unanswered.

However, social taboos and concerns around health of the child see many women abstain from drinking altogether during pregnancy.
