Research has shown that limiting alcohol consumption is so important for both partners when trying to fall pregnant.

Research published in the British Medical Journal discusses the fact that women with high or frequent alcohol intake have higher rates of menstrual disorders and irregular menstrual periods.  Pregnant women with high alcohol intake also have a higher incidence of miscarriages, placental abruption, preterm deliveries, and stillbirths than other women.

The National Health and Medical Research Council, Australia’s peak body on developing national health advice, recommends that for women who are pregnant, planning pregnancy or breastfeeding, not drinking alcohol is the safest option.
