A new report says light alcohol consumption during pregnancy won’t harm the development of an unborn baby.

More than 10,000 7-year-olds were studied.  Their mothers either drank a little while pregnant or not at all.  The research team found virtually no difference among children.   Experts warn that pregnant women who choose to drink alcohol should stick to no more than two units per week.

Prof Yvonne Kelly, co-author of the study in an International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (BJOG) said: “We know heavy drinking during pregnancy has a very deleterious effect, but it is very unlikely that drinking small amounts will have an impact.”
