Last month, Dr. Pound was featured on NBC12 Parenting and gave his opinion on a recent CDC infographic, about women drinking alcohol while pregnant. He noted that although it is necessary to point out the dangers of drinking while pregnant; the infographic came off as condescending and broad.
Dr. Pound spoke about the long-time efforts of the medical community to warn against drinking while pregnant, but there is not enough research to determine how much drinking, if any at all, is appropriate when pregnant. Women are encouraged to consider abstaining from alcohol while planning to conceive, and as this is a lifestyle change, it involves the partner as well.
