The Trinity College Dublin researchers said: 'Further research is required specifically addressing the effects of low alcohol intake in pregnancy before it can be considered safe.'

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has cautioned women against intake of alcohol in the first three months of pregnancy. Infact, women would do themselves and their babies a world of good if they abstained from alcohol completely during their pregnancy.
