Drinking alcohol in the first trimester of pregnancy may raise the risk of having a premature or low birth weight baby.
Researchers asked over 12-hundred women at risk of birth complications ... about their alcohol consumption both before and after becoming pregnant.
Women who drank more than two alcoholic beverages a week during their first trimester were twice as likely to deliver a smaller than expected baby than women who totally abstained from alcohol.
These women were more likely to be white, older, well educated and live in affluent areas.
