Being pregnant and consuming alcoholic beverages are usually two words that don't and shouldn't mix.  I hear that occasionally, women are allowed a small glass of wine, but that's it!  Guess not!!!!  According to a recent survey taken by The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, nearly ...8% of pregnant women between the ages of 18-44 had consumed alcohol within the last 30 days.  Mothers-to-be between the ages of 35-44 ranked highest when it came to using alcohol during pregnancy-14.3%

*The info in this report was collected over a 4 year period...from 2006-2010.
