Eight Percent Of Women Admit To Drinking While Pregnant
The scary part is how many of them are actually binge drinking while pregnant.
The CDC spoke with 14,000 pregnant women who were asked whether they drank alcohol in the previous month and how much: one in 13 admitted to boozing while pregnant.
The more troubling stat: Of those who said they drank, almost 20% said they went on at least one binge, downing four or more drinks.
The thing that really shocked me was that pregnant women ages 35 to 44 were the biggest drinkers.
The CDC wants to remind expecting moms that drinking, especially binge drinking, can damage fetal brain development.
