Can I drink alcohol when pregnant and/or breastfeeding - by an Australian Midwife

Can I drink alcohol when pregnant and/or breastfeeding?


The simple answer is no.

 

To be honest, we just don’t know.

 

Everything we know to be safe or not is based on evidence through some sort of study.

 

There really has never been a study done to find out how much is ok. This would be unethical.

 

When making your own decisions just keep in mind that when you are pregnant everything that you ingest goes through to your baby via the placenta. When breastfeeding the same concept applies. Everything goes through the breastmilk.

 

To be on the safe side we recommend you avoid alcohol all together. Good luck!
