I've heard about that,  but if you have ever seen or been around a kid with fetal alcohol syndrome then you wouldn't take the chance.  I worked with special need babies and kids for three years until I left my first trimester and believe me, I love those kids, but I avoid any unnecessary external stimulus.

It all depends on where you are from. The US is one of the only countries in the world that recommends no alcohol consumption during pregnancy. In the UK they usually say that one glass of wine a week is considered safe.

If u want to help baby be smart eat fish. I know salmon Is safe 8oz a week. The omega 3 in the fish helps with brain development. You can also buy milk with added DHA and omega 3 in it.

I definitely wouldn't personally. I know a lot of ladies do occasionally have one small drink, but I don't. I personally feel like 9 months is a small sacrifice. :) good luck to you

Pretty sure vitamins will be more effective with brain.development than a beer. I am not a.doctor... The only benefits of beer during pregnancy is to help with milk production whIle breasts feeding.
