Alcohol During Pregnancy


Each year in Germany about 10,000 babies are born with alcohol-related birth defects, reports the Süddeutsche Zeitung. Some 4,000 of these children are severely and permanently disabled. “There is no certain limit for safe alcohol consumption during pregnancy,” warns Drug Commissioner Sabine Bätzing. “We need to enhance the awareness of physicians, midwives, and pregnant women that even one drink now and then [by a pregnant woman] could harm a child mentally and physically or lead to behavioral problems.”
