Alcohol and Pregnancy News

A campaign was staged at London’s Victoria Station, to raise awareness of the issue of what alcohol can do if you are pregnant. The campaigners froze for nine minutes at 09:09:09 on the ninth day of the ninth month of 2009. The organisation which ran the event is The National Organisation on Alcohol Fetal Syndrome. Awareness was raised of the dangers from alcohol, to inform people that if consuming alcohol while pregnant it can cause brain damage.

The government guideline for drinking while pregnant states that women should avoid drinking at all if possible, if they decide to drink, no more than one or two units should be consumed a week. Binge drinking by the mother can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, premature birth as well as small baby weight.

Cheap Bar Hire is fully aware of the consequences of drinking while pregnant and would not try to tempt any one at one of our events.
