Going alcohol-free might
be a lifestyle choice or
medical necessity. But it’s
no reason to give up your
favourite wines.

Eisberg wines have all
the great taste of your
favourite wine, but none
of the alcohol.

Everyone from your mum to your hairdresser to your neighbour will have an opinion about what you should and shouldn’t be eating and drinking right now.

You know what is best for you and the bump, but what about those times when you really fancy a glass of wine?

Whether you’ve had a hard week at work or are trying to keep the early stages of your pregnancy quiet, not drinking in a social situation can be the obvious giveaway – so Eisberg’s range of crisp Chardonnay, fruity Rosé, ruby rich Cabernet Sauvignon and aromatic Riesling varieties ensure you can enjoy the sensation of pouring a real glass of wine, while still avoiding the alcohol content.

Facts about Alcohol

The UK Chief Medical Officer’s advice to women is:

‘Women who are pregnant or trying to conceive should avoid alcohol altogether. However, if they do choose to drink, to minimise the risk to the baby, we recommend they should not drink more than 1-2 units once or twice a week and should not get drunk.’

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) advises healthcare professionals (GPs and nurses):

  • Pregnant women and women planning to become pregnant should be advised to avoid drinking in the first three months of pregnancy because there may be an increased risk of miscarriage.
  • Women should be advised that if they choose to drink alcohol while they are pregnant, they should drink no more than 1-2 units of alcohol once or twice a week. There is uncertainty about how much alcohol is safe, but at this low level there is no evidence of any harm to the unborn baby.
  • Women should be advised not to get drunk or binge drink (more than 7.5 units on a single occasion) while pregnant because this can harm the unborn baby.

Decisions…decisions!

We had our 20-week scan today. We cycled into town, which I thought would be a good idea but halfway in realised was actually quite stretching!

When we got to the hospital, I started to feel a bit nervous. I had sort of forgotten that they call it an anomaly scan because they check that everything is ok, rather than just a fun opportunity to have a look at the baby. And thankfully, everything was ok. The baby was wriggling and they said everything seemed normal.

We had ummed and ahhhed about asking what the sex of the baby is, and in the end left it as a surprise, though as soon as we walked out I wished we had asked.

We waited to see the consultant to discuss our options. This is because after a mainly good labour with baby #1, it all went wrong and I had an emergency C section – partly because she was 10lb 2oz and partly because she moved so she was face first and got stuck.

They went through the pros and cons of a natural birth and a planned section. I had wanted to try again at a natural birth, because up until the end it had been a good experience, but she said that I wouldn’t be able to go to the midwife-led unit and I would definitely not be able to have a water birth. I would be hooked up to a monitor and a drip, not the ‘mother earth’ birth I envisioned. And there are a few other risks that are thrown in when you have had a section already, one being that the scar ruptures – not the nicest thing to hear.

And of course option number two is another section. I can’t imagine how it would be going into the operation in a calm, awake, non-emergency situation.

Why have we not evolved as a species for the whole thing to be just a bit easier? Why can’t we just teleport our babies out at the appropriate time with no risk and no mess?

I still haven’t made a decision. Part of me thinks I should feel empowered that our mighty NHS values me as an individual and has offered me this very personal choice. And part of me thinks I wish they had just told me what to do!

Time to get on the couch, put my feet up and pour a glass of wine (alcohol-free of course). There’s a lot to think about before this baby arrives!

Advice

How does alcohol affect my unborn baby?

Alcohol crosses the placenta into the bloodstream of the unborn baby, potentially interfering with how it grows and develops. In the absence of its own blood filtering system, the foetus is unprotected from any alcohol molecules that cross from the mother’s blood.

Facts about alcohol

It is estimated that one in four of us drink at levels that can put our health at risk.

Government advice is not to regularly drink more than 3-4 units of alcohol for men (equivalent to a pint and a half of beer) and 2-3 units for women (equivalent to a 175ml glass of wine).

Regularly means drinking every day or most days of the week.

Take three simple steps to cut back

  1. Take 2-3 days off alcohol each week. This allows your liver to repair and stops your body building up a tolerance to alcohol.
  2. Eat well. A healthy meal before drinking alcohol and low-fat, low-salt snacks in between drinks can help to slow down the absorption of alcohol. A healthy diet supports liver function year-round.
  3. Keep track of what you are drinking. Your liver can’t tell you if you’re drinking too much, but you can. So don’t lose count.

Healthy lifestyles

Did you know the average ‘small’ glass of wine (125ml) contains 92.5 calories? That’s an awful lot over the course of a night out. Whereas a 125ml glass of Eisberg is just 34 calories. That’s less than orange juice (59 calories) and fizzy soft drinks (average 48 calories).

Medical research suggests that moderate amounts of red wine can be beneficial to health – the good news is that alcohol-free wine has all of these benefits with none of the side effects of alcohol.

Alcohol reduces the body’s recovery rate after vigorous exercise, while even moderate alcohol consumption can hamper performance in competitive sports.
