Does alcohol harm child health in the first few weeks of pregnancy?
(10.07.2010) Women should never drink alcohol during pregnancy. But women who notice pregnancy too late and who still drank alcohol in the early stages worry about the health of their unborn child. The German Society for Gynecology and Obstetrics (DGGG) gives the all-clear for at least the first two weeks.
It happens again and again, women who notice a pregnancy too late in the first few weeks still drink alcohol here and there. When the pregnancy is certain, many expectant mothers worry about the future health of the child. But the German Society for Gynecology and Obstetrics gives the all-clear for at least the first two weeks of pregnancy. Women who have taken a sip of alcohol in the first two weeks need not worry about early harm.
Those who want to get pregnant and have a desire to have children should generally refrain from alcohol, according to the gynecologists. Because from the fifth to the twelfth week of pregnancy, it is particularly dangerous to drink alcohol, because at this point vital organs and the nervous system are created. From the fourth month of pregnancy, the wrong use of medicines can lead to premature labor or to an inhibited growth of the child. The advice of the doctors: Basically no alcohol and taking medication should definitely be discussed with a gynecologist. (sb)
