It is a well known fact that drinking heavily causes birth defects in the developing fetus. As far as having a few drinks or a glass of wine, the jury is still out. Obviously, there can be no argument that abstaining from alcohol throughout pregnancy is the best advice.

Drinking alcohol while pregnant can cause birth defects. Why?
