A recent study published in BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, says that low to moderate drinking throughout pregnancy did not alter kids' IQs.
The researchers looked at 1,628 women, with the average age of about 30 years old, half of whom were first-time mothers.
The authors of the study had the women report how often they were drinking.
Low: one to four drinks per week
Moderate: five to eight per week
Binge Drinking: five or more in a single occasion.
The researchers then followed up five years later and administered IQ tests to their 5-year-old children.
“There were no significant effects on test performance in children of mothers drinking up to eight drinks per week, compared to children of abstaining mothers. However, there was a significant association between maternal consumption of 9 or more drinks per week and risk of low overall attention score.”
