I am 8 weeks pregnant and I am a big lover of red wine. My question is: will a glass of wine every now and then affect my baby's development?

In brief: Maybe
We don't know how much alcohol it takes to affect your unborn baby.
Because of this the recommendation is no alcohol while you are pregnant. But cheer up; an occasional glass of red wine can be beneficial if you are breastfeeding!
