No alcohol is the safest choice when a person is trying to become pregnant, if they think they might be pregnant or if they know they are pregnant. Alcohol use during this time can result in serious lifelong harm for a developing baby.

Following the low risk drinking guidelines can reduce the risk of a wide range of long-term health problems.

What's your limit?

If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, or about to breastfeed, the safest choice is to drink no alcohol at all.

Reduce your long term health risks by drinking no more than:

15 drinks a week with no more than 3 drinks a day most days.

Plan non-drinking days every week to avoid developing a habit.
