There are many studies for many years those who have been telling us that drinking alcohol during pregnancy can be dangerous for the baby, and therefore recommended that if a woman is pregnant she don’t drink not a drop of alcohol.
A recent study sought to assess children from 10 years of Avon, an ancient town in the South-West of England, to see If there were changes among those who were born by a mother who drank alcohol and which were developed with a mother who didn’t drink. The funny thing is that It had not, it could be safe, and what makes that recommendation does not vary is that they set on balance, nothing more.
Characteristics of the study
Well, “nothing more” is a bit brief. The ability to balance is considered a reliable method of fetal neurodevelopmental, so 6.915 children from 10 years of Avon was evaluated to verify that capacity. The mothers were consulted so that explain how much alcohol they drank to 18 weeks of pregnancy and then when the child had served already 4 years.
The majority of mothers (70%) said that he had not consumed alcohol during pregnancy. 25% said that it had had a consumption between low (one to two drinks per week) and moderate (three to seven drinks per week). Of these one of every seven explained that it had very high consumption days, taking up to four glasses of alcohol a day.
When the children were four years old, 50% of mothers had a moderate consumption (3 to 7 drinks per week), being the profile of older women, richest and best educated.
When the children had already ten years evaluated the balance with three tests: one that you included walking on a balance beam (to observe the dynamic equilibrium), another one that was standing in front of the other with eyes open and closed (to evaluate the static balance) and the third, which had to stand on one leg, with eyes open and closed.
The study’s conclusions
The researchers noted that the children of mothers who had taken alcohol moderately did not have worse balance than those whose mothers did not take alcohol. Even saw that they performed better in some tests. However, it is believed that the positive results could be secondary to wealth and the education of mothers, namely brain development that occurs after birth.
John Macleod, one of the authors of the study, explained that there is no evidence that moderate use of alcohol is good for children, but also There seems to be strong evidence about the harmful effects that could result in the consumption of alcohol.
I, by common sense, keep saying and thinking that alcohol during pregnancy may not be good (in addition, other studies support it). If it seems advisable for anyone, whether male or female, pregnant or not, can’t seem me suitable for a fetus that is being developed. Let us not forget that the concentration of alcohol in blood to reach the mother will be the same as that of the fetus.
By exemplifying it, if a pregnant woman takes a beer, his son also will take a beer. As I do not think that anyone in their right mind give a beer to a newly born between outlet and outlet (a beer gets into a bottle and is offered to the baby until it finishes it), I can’t think that you may well be that a woman take it while pregnant.
Course, it is not the first time that we study the effects of alcohol taken during pregnancy in the future baby. It apparently does not affect the equilibrium, but yes it can affect other things. A meta-analysis performed in 2010, for example, showed that the risk of leukemia was significantly higher in children whose mothers drank.
Another study conducted on 501 mothers and children analyzed the consequences to the 6 and 7 years of drinking alcohol during pregnancy and saw that drink alcohol once a week already affect the aggressiveness of the children in a meaningful way.
So all in all not, It is not advisable to drink alcohol while pregnant, because one thing is the balance and quite another that can affect other things, such as general health or behavior, or more things that we have not spoken (delays of growth, birth defects, etc.).
