A new study found that light drinking of alcohol, up to two drinks per week, during pregnancy is not linked to developmental problems in the child:
"Children born to light drinkers don't appear to be at any increased risk for developmental problems," Yvonne Kelly, a professor at University College London and co-author of the study, told The Huffington Post.
Despite these findings, she does not advise pregnant women to drink -- lightly or otherwise -- during pregnancy.
"From a neutral scientific perspective, we're not advocating that women should or shouldn't do anything particular," she said.
While research has found it's safe, do you feel it's worth the risk? Is having an occasional drink an issue for you?
