also, does does a mum-to-be have a duty of care to her unborn child? if so, when does that duty start? and what is the required standard of care? 1 drink a week? 0 drinks for the entire nine months? it's a minefield!

Someone can't get away with drink driving just because they claim they didn't know you weren't meant to drink and drive.
If the government can come up with a safe drinking limit for driving then I guess they could also come up with an arbitrary number for pregnancy as well - slightly harder to prove it though unless we start breathalising pregnant women at their antenatal appointment.
And before I get shot down for any of this, I'm just theorising and don't necessarily agree with any of the arguments I'm making!!
