No matter if your mother and grandmother drank like fishes when they were pregnant, drinking and pregnancy DO NOT mix. Is it safe during pregnancy? A definite NO. Hard alcohol is particularly dangerous. Not a drop should pass your lips during the first trimester because that's when the risks to the baby's development are serious. However, at the end of your pregnancy, a very small, very occasional glass of wine could be OK. But don't take our word for it, ask your doctor!
