drinking whilst pregnant

full story in Herald Sun
So I made it onto page 5 of The Herald Sun today (our Melbourne newspaper for those reading this over the waters). It's a story about the risks of drinking whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. 
Personally I believe there's not enough research or proof surrounding alcohol consumption when pregnant so my view is not to risk it. Simple as that. I could never forgive myself if my baby was born with health issues. I would be left wondering whether it was that glass or two of alcohol I drunk those few times. It's really not worth the stress.

The topic, along with gay marriage and abortion gets people very emotional and heated so although I encourage comments on this post (and any others), please keep any comments friendly.  If you want to get heated on this particular topic, feel free to comment on the online story in The Herald Sun.

Also, for those who may be interested, the dress worn in the photo is a Miss Scarlet dress by Melbourne label Rummage Style and the brooch is by Little Shop of Handmade both available at Betty's Place!


  1. Anyone who can't give up drinking at the drop of a hat has a drinking problem or at the very least an addictive personality. Neither will benefit them in their parenting role. Cherrie

    1. That is very true Cherrie. It's a very selfish thing to do to keep drinking throughout the pregnancy.

  2. I'm with you....nine (ten) months is only a wee bit of time when you really think about it, and wouldn't you hate to have to look back and think "I wonder if it was that drink?" if something went awry.
    LOVE the dress!


I like reading your comments, so thanks for taking the time to write something. I try to respond to each and every comment, but please be patient as I'm not always online.
