alcohol and early pregnancy
I am about a month pregnant, I would like to know if it is safe to have one drink at the moment like a cider (Hunters) or if I should rather not have anything alcoholic. I don’t want to do anything that is dangerous.

Best to avoid it completely. The effects of heavy drinking are well known but the effect of small amounts is less clear.
