i just found out my wife is pregnant. however, she did drink alcohol a week after her period. should we be concerned?

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Not yet: The pregnancy was in a stage whereby the impact of alcohol was minimal to the developing conceptus. However, this is a good time to remind her to "put the alcohol bottle down", as continued drinking in pregnancy is very harmful to the fetus.
