Alcohol In Pregnancy! Confusing because of no international standard agreement Here is RANCOG's Official position.
Alcohol in pregnancy. A review after St. Patricks day.
More info HERE. Alcohol in pregnancy can is a cause of great concern for many women. It is made worse by degrees of mis-information that they may be subjected to.
Many women conceive at or around a time when alcohol has been consumed. Before the pregnancy identifies itself and or confirmed normal alcohol consumption would have taken place. This is not uncommon but fills women with a retrospective guilt. It is so common that there is a modicum of reassurance that whilst acknowledging it is sub-optimal and if planning to conceive the cessation of alcohol is recommended it appears to have minimal implications in the overall pregnancy when this has not been the case. The anxiety itself can itself potentiate more concern than something which cannot be altered.
Please Read The RANZCOG guidelines here on alcohol in pregnancy.

Billy Connolly has to be one of the most animated and charismatic comedian there has ever been. The Big Yin has nothing to do with Ireland, so thought it would be a little Irish of me to share this touching appeal for Red Nose Day UK!

A quote for all the women who know this to be true.
"Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the.."
I know its not just a womans issue it is everyone's issue
So here is a quote for the men that support us
“It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquillity:
they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.
Millions are condemned to a stiller doom than mine, and millions are in silent revolt against their lot.
Nobody knows how many rebellions besides political rebellions ferment in the masses of life which people earth.
Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts, as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, to absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.” — Charlotte Brontë
"I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman. - Anais Nin
