Drinking while pregnant: Not so bad?

 
Drinking while pregnant: Not so bad?

A study from the University of Copenhagen is raising some eyebrows about the correlation between children's mental health and whether or not their mothers drank during their pregnancy.

In the study, researchers tried to dermine a link between emotional issues in children, and whether or not their mothers consumed alcohol while pregnant. What they found was that the mothers who drank the occasional alcoholic beverage while pregnant were more likely to have children with fewer mental and emotional issues.

Conversely, the children with the most mental and emotional problems were born to mothers who didn't consume a drop of alcohol while pregnant.

Obviously, we're not saying that pregnant women should go get drunk, but maybe having the occasional adult beverage during pregnancy isn't so bad...

Moms: Be honest... Did you ever drink when you were pregnant? (My mom will readily admit that she drank while pregnant with me and look how great I turned out! LOL!)
