When you are pregnant, you are not just "eating for two." You also breathe and drink for two, so it is important to carefully consider what you give to your baby. If you smoke, use alcohol or take illegal drugs, so does your unborn baby.

First, don't smoke. Smoking during pregnancy passes nicotine and cancer-causing drugs to your baby. Smoke also keeps your baby from getting nourishment and raises the risk of stillbirth or premature birth. Don't drink alcohol. There is no known safe amount of alcohol a woman can drink while pregnant. Alcohol can cause life-long physical and behavioral problems in children, including fetal alcohol syndrome. Don't use illegal drugs. Using illegal drugs may cause underweight babies, birth defects or withdrawal symptoms after birth.

If you are pregnant and you smoke, drink alcohol or do drugs, get help. Your health care provider can recommend programs to help you quit. You and your baby will be better off.

What about wine? I've heard people say that a small glass of wine was ok.

There was no sense in your dumb question. You wouldn't give it to a baby. Why even ask? If you wouldn't give it to a baby in real life then why is it so hard to figure out if you can give to a baby inside your body? People are so stupid.

Yes u can have wine!!!! I had extremely low iron levels and two doctors said 3 oz of wine before bedtime was adequate for helping my iron levels rebuild and maintain a safe level for me and my baby. I would only drink wine when my levels were low..
