Who doesn't know that alcohol is bad for babies?
Maybe more moms than you'd think…
The Centers For Disease Control And Prevention performed a survey of over 14,000 women over 4 years. Of those women over a thousand said they drank alcohol while pregnant!
Of course, some may only have had a sip of wine here and there, but 1 in 5 of the women who admitted to drinking said they had gone on at least one binge!
Believe it or not, this is actually good news. As scary as these numbers are, they're actually a bit lower than a previous similar survey.
We hope that with all the information about newborn health out there, women are taking their pregnancies seriously.
The CDC reports about 5,000 babies are born every year with fetal alcohol syndrome, and that's way too many.
Think before you drink, ladies! You wouldn't get drunk while driving a car, and a baby is worth way more!
