How Does Drinking While Pregnant Effect Your Child's Development?
Light drinking during pregnancy does not seem to have any bad effects on a child's development.
That's according to a new study from London.
Researchers compared 7-year-olds born to mothers who abstained from alcohol during their pregnancies to children whose mothers had about a small glass of wine or half a beer each week.
They found no statistical difference in the behavioral and cognitive scores of the two groups, but researchers warn differences could still emerge later in childhood.
