Alcohol

No alcohol is the safest choice when a woman is trying to become pregnant, if she thinks she might be pregnant or if she knows that she is pregnant. Alcohol use during this time can result in serious lifelong harm for a developing baby. For men, 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.
