    i mean the report explained COUNTERATTACK too this “Moderate Drinking During Pregnancy is Safe?” claim…….

  • wanna read a story about one of the dumbest people in the world? ok then prepare to read about my sister (this happened like 2 years ago i think, my sister was i think 24 at the time and pregnant, and living with my mother, i visited them and caught her smoking that fake pot “spice” and drinking a beer, after taking both from her she decided to argue with me saying “smoking reduces the babies stress, and beer relaxes it”…. she even said her doctor told her that (side note i already know about how quitting cold turkey on things like alcohol if you are highly addicted can harm the baby, dont reply saying how she is right because she took it way out of context and wanted to just do it for fun)…. sadly i havent seen my niece since she was 2 weeks old, and even then i didnt get a good look at her. friends of the family ask me if she has autism or down syndrome, etc etc… that selfish bitch destroyed that childs life, and i cant forgive her for it 

  • I was drinking while pregnant but I never knew I was pregnant but every time I drink I vomit it back out will it still affect my baby

  • I know I am going to piss some people off, especially the purest. With that being said…. I totally agree with what she is said.  If you binge drink or drink every day=unhealthy baby.
    But…. I have now had 6 pregnancies. I would enjoy an occasional glass of wine or a beer, After 6 month of being pregnant. All kids were 9+ pounds, healthy full term babies. except for the twins, because they are twins. But together they were 9+ pounds lol. Anyways, I know it is different for everyone. But My Irish Genes soak it all up. It massively helps with Pelvic Girdle Pain.
    Again, I am not saying go out to the club and throw back shots, or a case of beer. But a glass of wine after 6 months, with a low risk pregnancy never did anything to my kids. They are healthy, and smart and perfect. Until they take over this horrible planet MUHAHAHAHAHAH!

  • Getting drunk heck no! A glass or two of proper wine with dinner a couple times a week maybe. Actually come from a long line if women who’ve had wine while pregnant and all babies were healthy. To each their own.

  • my friend is supplying alochol to her future pregnant sister in law. she claims it wont hurt the baby. plus she drinking caffeinated beverage too.

  • I would NEVER take this risk!! If you are expecting to get ANY health benefit at all from alcohol, it better be at least certified organic.. Yes, these options are out there. It still blows my mind that most people go their entire life never trying ORGANIC WINE OR BEER!

  • I’m a product of a alcoholic birth mom I have FAS. It causes so much problems. ADHD panic disorder depression. Epilepsy, scoliosis. School was hell.
    I don’t had a diploma I have a certificate. I have a job one day a week cleaning at a store. It’ll probably be my job for life. My birth mom damaged me. I have brain damage. It’s not my fault it’s hers. You can say alohalism is a illness but it doesn’t seem like it to a kid who suffers for it. I’m more likely to become a alcoholic then anyone. All because someone had to drink thinking only of themselves and not they’re baby.
    My dream was to be a vet tech. Not gonna happen. I can’t do it I can’t finish the high school math. I just can’t no matter how many tutors you get. I wanna work with animals. But I’m not sure I’ll be able to.
    It’s not my fault I’m not a failure. It took me a while to figure that out.
    Don’t drink while your pregnant.

  • For those of us who don’t consume alcohol, it’s a non-issue and the idea of “fixing” the first bad decision of drinking by making another bad decision of aborting is just horrible.

  • alcohol is bad for a baby any day, what i think for a lovable, caring, husband should also avoid alcohol during d pregnancy period to support his better half…coz they r in this together!!! dis is d most respectful & caring gift anyone can ever give to eachother….love is all v hav & got….god bless every couple ��

  • Um my step mom is pregnant (1Week) and she drinks… I don’t want it to die/birth defects!!! but she does have a spoonful of wine with water… what will happen??!

  • I think it’s really stupid to drink anything at all while pregnant. Also I think it’s really not empathetic of the other parent to drink while hir partner is pregnant.

  • Hmmm Personally I would never do this. I wouldn’t even risk it. Just in case. 9 months really is over before you know it. I had no problem waiting to drink until after my daughter was born.

  • Great Video! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you heard the talk about Saankramer Life Card System (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a smashing exclusive guide for learning how to stop drinking minus the headache. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my mate finally got excellent results with it.

  • You have got to love how Europeans manage to have a drink or two while pregnant but do not have these massive FAS problems as North Americans. Yes you can have a drink or two while pregnant, don’t let anyone fool you that you can not. The problem is people having to many drinks. The more you have the less restraint you will have. I don’t know why the USA stays its course in pure absidence from everything it finds ‘not right’. Instead it should find ways to incorporate what people are doing into ways that is acceptable. Do drink, but in moderation.

  • The things you say that pregnant women can’t have are really things they shouldn’t have. They can have all of the things you mention but there may be terrible consequences.

  • As a pharmacist, I am strongly against drinking in pregnancy. You really want to risk your child’s quality of life for the rest of his/her life just so you can get your fix? You have a right to excercise control over your body, but when you decide to have a child, you have a responsibility to that child.

  • This video title is horrible. NO. A woman can not drink while pregnant. Do you realize how much harm you are causing to that baby? Even if you drank half a glass a day, that alcohol is still going into the baby’s body. What’s the legal drinking age!?! 19 where I am! I just can’t believe that you would have any drinks while you’re pregnant. That is extremely selfish. Even if it doesn’t cause your baby any harmit still has a chance of causing your baby to have a life of special needs. My brother was adopted at the age of 1. His birth mother drank but when she found out she was pregnant, she stopped then later on had a relapse. Even though she didn’t drink as much as some people, my brother has a life of struggling all because she was selfish. My brother could not be successful in academics because of how much his brain has been affected. I just want to say something to all you soon to be mothers out there. Do not be selfish. And if you are an alcoholic, get help. Go see someone who can help you! The same goes for drug use while you are pregnant! Fetal alcohol syndrome is devastating, and it could all go away if people would stop being so selfish.
    Sincerely, a sister of a kid with fetal alcohol syndrome.

  • Yet some idiotic biased ass scientists claim environment has no impact on IQ and mental development. I can’t for the life of me understand how some of these scientists can claim that environment, nutrition, stress levels, have no impact on the development of the brain prenatal and post natal. How the fuck does that even make sense???

  • I noticed the stats are in terms of drinks per day. What about the occasional weekend binge? Like a night out on Friday but you drink 15 drinks all in one night. How does the occasional binge factor into FAS?

  • I’m all for mandatory sterilization or chemical castration, but for everyone. Men and women or whomever wants a kid should have to apply like getting a drivers license except way more stringent. Have proof of income, no criminal record or history of addiction etc. Just saying once that kid comes out there is no revoking it or putting it back in. If parents fail it’s society’s problem now.

  • I was in a taxi queue once and overheard a group of totally drunk woman talking about one of them being pregnant.  They claimed it was a good idea to drink when pregnant because it would  make giving birth easier, by means of smaller baby head.  I wanted to think they where joking, but no sense of that.  This was in a well educated area…..

  • All of you people trashing these women for a glass of wine are ridiculous.

    I bet most of you have let doctors slam mercury into your kids leg, and feed them all sorts of processed, preserved fake food. I bet you are all so proud of your fat little ADD kids though, at least you did not have a glass of wine for 8 months. Yeah, 8 months. Lord knows you were shit faced the whole month before you noticed all the extra maxi pads in your purse.

  • 3 to 7 glasses a week?? that’s crazy…. my grandmother says a little wine every now and again NOT a full glass�� just a little something is ok…..

  • I’m not saying this is a good idea, but here’s some historical info:

    Europe used to purify water by alcohol. If you lived in a city, every ounce of liquid you drank had enough alcohol in it to kill bacteria or you would likely die from infection. As a result most people were slightly buzzed all the time.

    People lived. Is it better for your baby to not drink, probably yes. Will your baby be an idiot if you have two beers? Obviously no. DaVinci’s mother was buzzed pretty much all the time.

  • Go ahead and play Russian Roulette with your baby. One cannot abstain from alcohol for 9-10 mos. to ensure a healthy baby? I find this hard to understand. I’m raising a FASD child. His life and mine has been a journey from hell, with very little respite from this diagnosis. My heart hurts to think about what it must be like to be forever trapped in his brain.

  • So this great news for women, who no longer have to confine themselves to certain behaviors while pregnant. Now all the nosy neighbors and gossip gluttons can find something else to shame them for. Yay!

  • I have Asperger Syndrome and I’m adopted. I just found out my real parents were drunk all the time when I was a fetus..I was pretty shocked about that..:/

  • Wait… You can’t have caffeine when you’re pregnant? O.O Well I’m fucked in a few years then cause I can’t even go 2 hours without my cherry coke let alone 9 months:(

  • On a related note, I always find it weird when scientists characterize 1 to 3 drinks a day as moderate alcohol consumption. I only speak for myself and I realize we aren’t all the same, but after 3 drinks I’m personally pretty drunk. I couldn’t imagine doing it everyday.

  • Drinking is great and all but if your pregnant just live without it for 8 months. If you really feel that you cannot live without it for 8 months then that in itself is a problem and enough reason to not drink. You shouldn’t be mastered by anything

  • Okay. So I had to drink wine while I was pregnant with my son due to a lack of nutrients that I needed and wasn’t absorbing properly using regular foods and vitamins. The doctor approved it, and i only drank a half a cup (measured out using a measuring cup) and it was only 3 times a week. This was after 5 months of already being pregnant though. My son was born happy and healthy with no jaundice, birth defects, or FAS. Obviously don’t drink tequila or heavy alcohol while pregnant but a little wine after you hit the five month mark shouldn’t hurt the baby. It’s all about moderation

  • i dont see a big problem with quitting the alcohol for about a year.. and people that cant stop are obviously having a bigger problem than this

  • You’re not even supposed to drink if you’re breast feeding. The only think you can possibly drink is dark beer, but not while pregnant

  • She should have mentioned that the physical defects are the ONLY way to diagnose FAS, so when she says one drink a day causes no FAS what she she means is no obvious physical traits that are associated with it. So while one drink a day may very well not cause any outward FAS there is no way to know if it has or hasn’t done slight damage to the infant’s brain.

  • I was 23 and partying, drinking heavily in Waikiki. I was surprised that I was pregnant and I immediately quit drinking. Talking to the doctor about my drinking habits BEFORE pregnancy test, he recommended that I decrease my alcohol content and then finally quit to avoid alcohol withdrawal which I never knew was potentially deadly to not only the baby, but me too! I didn’t though. I didn’t drink anything during my pregnancy and I had a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby boy. But, now he is in his preteens so a glass of wine here and there are definitely a nice end to some of my days.

  • Neighbor kid had fetal alcohol syndrome. Sweet kid, but dumb as a stump. Sounds like moderate drinking is safe, but remove the stigma of drinking while pregnant and more alkys will be spitting out more brain dead kids.. Nice study but the stigma serves a purpose.

  • Wine is just old fruit, trust your instincts… if it says have a glass of wine every once in a while go ahead and it it tells you don’t then don’t

  • I am interested in why you called alcoholism a “disease”. What characterizes an addiction/habit to be a disease instead of say a mental illness? I am curious about the terminology and its uses.

  • That’s cnn for you. Kill babies that’s ok. So cnn says if you’re knocked up fuk it drink alcohol while you drink smoke some Crack or dope is ok too �� fake disgusting news. They promote baby genocide wtf��

  • I have a learning disabilitie but I’m not retarded I just learn differently lol more hands on then math or history person so anyways my mom didn’t know she was pregnant until she was 5 months in he belly never showed she plays pool even Tuesday and she drink shots and beer like I mean I’m perfectly fine expect for my scoliosis and learning disability

  • would you give a 1 year old baby a glass of wine to drink…. hopefully not. So why would you give a fetus any alcohol. The baby is developing organs and brain tissue it needs for its entire life. 049: Zero Alcohol For Nine Months! For more information visit. mofas.org

  • I would think a tasting of wine a few times a week would keep the edge off.  Are there any studies on how the relative happiness of the mother correlates to a newborn’s health?

  • Ladies please dont drink while pregnant. Ask yourself this, where are these children that their talking about?. “Heres the Science”?!. Oh wait later the CNN dr said later the Science is “smushy”..heres a science FACT! Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Happens when a mother drinks excessively. A Poison in any amount while pregnant is dangerous to the baby. Thats just common sense..

  • I was drinking a few weeks before I found out I was pregnant. So don’t beat yourself up if you did not know you were pregnant when you were drinking. Once I found out I cut it out completely. But it isn’t uncommon for women to have drank before they found out.

  • 1 drink while pregnant is like giving the fetus 4 drinks? But if you actually put alcohol in a babies bottle you’d be charged with child abuse. How about 0 drinks.

  • I have spent months researching into quitting alcohol and discovered a great website at Adoette drink plan (google it if you are interested)

  • 42 likes and 42 dislikes what lol �� if youve never been pregnant nor can get pregnant you should have no say in what pregnant women can put in their body. Lol it is a known secret that pregnant women can drink throughout pregnancy.
    doctors just dont trust women with this secret so they tell women they cant drink at all during pregnancy lol yall are so dumb to believe whatever a doctor tells you lol yeah they tell the truth from time to time but yall also believe their lies which is just sad lol what makes you think they wont lie to you? Lol

  • These scientists should be working on a fucking cure to cancer, not EXPERIMENTING WITH INTOXICANTS SO YOU CAN DRINK WHILE YOU’RE PREGNANT. Next I bet they’ll say Weed is good in moderation during pregnancy. Fucking idiots.

  • My mom quit smoking on the day when she found out she was pregnant, and at that point she had been smoking for 5 years. Why would anyone want to risk their child being born retarded?

  • In France women drink wine while they’re pregnant. That news shocked the hell out of me. In North America, if I saw a pregnant woman drinking, I’d be feel very disturbed. I’m not condoning it, just pointing out the cultural differences.

  • well why not see what happens to animals babies after there moms booze then the whole planet will be full of dumb shits this is not ok drinking is poison and evil sorry to sound ignorant i’m just saying simple fact is some people have no moderation 

  • Foetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is subsepc of a broader category of conditions called foetal alcohol syndrome disorder (FASD). Everyone knows about FAS the gross facial abnormalities, Musculoskeletal problems ect. But people don’t usually discuss FASD where the child might look normal but will grow up to have cognitive impairment poor impulse control, judgement, and attention, lack of social and communication skills, visual spatial defects, trouble with math and reading ect. FASD manifests with just as little as 1 drink a week. The growing foetus has many as 40,000 synaptic connections in the third trimester. And what are the chances that your foetus will get FASD if you drink? 1 in 2 aka 50 %. The studies that have been done so far which show that alcohol is okay during pregnancy mostly look at FAS or at children upto 5 years of age. When would FASD manifest? once the child starts going to school! I drink myself so believe me when I say that I am not against drinking in moderation but drinking while pregnant can cause serious harm to the foetus and I would advise anyone thinking of the above to abstain

  • Implementing a little cannabis into your daily regimen can provide great benefits for your developing child. It can potentially improve your own immune health, brain and nervous system as it has an anxiolytic effect.

  • So paranoid with drinking now. one weekend by the campfire a month into your unknown pregnancy could mess your child up for life. 

  • Listen if you wanna play dr with your baby and experiment how much of intoxicants and chemicals you can take without hurting your baby, you don’t fucking deserve a baby.

  • Unlike males, that produce sperm all the time, female eggs are already formed after birth and stay in the ovaries, that at the age of 12-14 start releasing one at a time each month. Alcohol harms the eggs, and you’ll never know which egg was damaged, that egg might be the one to become a baby, and it will be a really painful scar on your life. Don’t mess with Alcohol, it’s a dangerous drug.

  • Corporate news never fails to disgust me. As if spreading lies to the world to propagandize wars of aggression (ie premeditated mass murder) wasn’t enough, now they are encouraging pregnant ladies to drink alcohol. Fuck you!

  • That’s cool that Alaska bars are raising awareness about the disease of pregnancy.  Although parasite might describe it better than “disease”

  • Once you see the damage done a child whose mother drank alcohol during pregnancy you will be appalled. DON’T LET IT HAPPEN TO YOUR CHILD. Plus you will have to raise your child until it can take responsibility for itself if it ever can.

  • My wonder is, why take the chance?? There are so many people whose children are born with unfortunate syndromes without the mothers even consuming a SINGLE DROP of alcohol. I think it’s selfish and inconsiderate. If you’re willing to be pregnant, why take a chance with the living being inside of you?

  • They didn’t score any lower because we’re already bred to be dumb enough to breed, see Vinning’s study, see Richard Lynn’s. We hit rock bottom long ago and now live in an idiocracy much more liken to Snooki than Bertrand Russel. I wouldn’t expect them to score significantly lower, we’re already evolved into pillars of garbage. Notice how aggressive most people are? Aggression and stupidity are confirmed to be the same thing, see the Kandel or Bruce Bower et cetera studies.
