New research drawing on data from the UK’s Millenium Cohort Study, a large study tracking the long term health of children born in the UK, suggests that light drinking during pregnancy does not harm a child’s behavioural or intellectual development.
The research, published today in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health (A BMJ journal) drew on a sample of 11,513 children and interviewed participants’ mothers about their drinking patterns during pregnancy and other social and economic factors that may impact a child’s development, when the children were aged 9 months.
