    Having a drink is a massive deal. Go look up fetal alcohol syndrome! You shouldn't make statements like that, it's irresponsible! The affects of only a small amount of alcohol on a fetus is unbelievable!

    No it is not rubbish, what you said is rubbish.

    Going around spewing this sort of garbage is completely irresponsible.

    I hope no one ever asks you for pregnancy advice in real life. While nothing may have happened to you, I think you'll find that careless attitude won sit well with people who have had listeria, fetal alcohol syndrome or any other food related illness that have affected their pregnancy.

    Actually, as there is conflicting evidence, then you can't really say what anyone thinks is rubbish. And using words like garbage and irresponsible just serves to offend those who choose to have an occasional drink while pregnant. This dull old thread keeps getting rehashed, arguments ensue, it gets cleaned and then some bright spark starts it up again. People are never going to agree, but thankfully we can all make our own choices.

    The comment refers to the general statement made about all foods being fine in moderation. Dangerous statement to make.

    I couldnt care less if you or anyone else drinks during your pregnancy.

    I do care that I advise people to join this site for the support and information and then come across statements like that. Listeria is a real threat to some mothers and babies, and whilst you and everyone you know may be lucky - imagine being the one who wasn't so lucky.

    Prof Plum is acutally talking sense, you do the research. The word "Moderation" was used which is the key word. Each to their own but its not fair to judge without looking at the research. . . getting drunk every night is irresponsible, one drink a night has not be proven to cause any damage to babies intact up to 10 units per week has not had any adverse side effects in the fetus

    Once again I wasn't specifically referring to the alcohol comment. It was the EVERYTHING in

    But I'm sure everyones internet research is much better than the actual training and research we did when we were studying conception, fertility and pregnancy during my nursing course. I'll bow our now as two minute with Dr Google obviously pulls more weight and has far more knowledge than the NSW health department, our government health bodies and our university systems.

    That's very patronising. You don't know where people get their information. Anyway I'll take advice off my doctor rather than some random on an internet forum any day, so good idea on bowing out

    I'll take the very small risk associated with the odd glass of wine over the risk of elective induction, epidurals and elective cesarean section any day.

    I "love" the whole, can't eat this, can't drink that might hurt the baby but when it comes to getting the baby out all the risk analysis goes out the window.

    Each to their own of course, I just find the lack of consistency odd.
