The risk of dying soon after birth is pronounced in babies born to mothers who drink during pregnancy.

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.
