    Hi all,

    I am from chennai, a week before i went to a pub and i have seen a group of women whom i think celebrating some b'day i think , all womens are having drinks i mean it, like they are taking equally like mens in terms of the drinks and also the quantity, one particular women i have seen she is taking some brandy and also she is continuosly smoking, am really surprised to see how chennai and other cities in india are growing in these kind of culture. even i agree they have equal right what mens have, but i think this is something too much i think.

    if a pregnant women takes drinks, was it not bad to her health and also to the new one who is going to c the world in few months /days??

    It is equally foolish of a person, man or woman, to smoke. Period. Alcohol - depends on the quantity and frequency and type and how the drinks are mixed. For a pregnant woman, both are a big no-no. You didn't say that anyone in that party was pregnant. Was someone there pregnant? If so, it is incredibly foolish of her to drink/smoke/be around smokers. Clearly, not a very responsible woman. I know women who have had a drink or two during pregnancy with no apparent ill-effects on their babies.

    No amount of alcohol has been proven to be safe during pregnancy and exposure to smoke has been shown to possibly result in premature birth and low birth weight.

    Its really bad to consume alcohol or tobacco during pregnancy.

    It not only affects them but also their unborn baby...
