India’s fertility expert Dr. Hrishikesh Pai highlights the ill effects of alcohol consumption in pregnant women and/or women wishing to get pregnant. He states that studies reveal birth defects and long-term medical issues in children on account of alcohol consumption by their mothers.
He states, ‘Alcohol consumption during pregnancy causes fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) in the unborn child. The child is likely to bear physical, mental, and emotional implications for a lifetime. Also, alcohol has adversely affected fertility, delays the conception process, and increases the risk of miscarriage.’
Dr. Hrishikesh Pai is one of the founders of the Budget IVF and Fertility Clinic, in Mumbai and the pioneer of IVF technology in India. His other team members include leading expert gynecologists Dr. Rishma Dhillon Pai, and Dr. Rohan Palshetkar treating gynecological and infertility issues.
As mentioned above, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) includes a range of physical, mental, behavioral, and learning disabilities. A child born with FASD will have heart defects, learning issues, thinking and speech issues, changes in the shape of the face, behavioral issues, attention issues, balance and movement issues, and growth issues before and after birth. The intensity of these issues can be mild or severe.
Patients can consult, Dr. Hrishikesh Pai, has an extensive history of successfully treating numerous patients, along with Dr. Rishma Pai, who is recognized as one of India’s top gynecologist doctors by Clinicspots, a leading medical aggregator platform.
Studies also reveal loss of pregnancy, stillbirth, premature delivery, or a child born with cerebral palsy due to alcohol consumption. There is proof that alcohol affects the child before and during pregnancy. However, medical experts cannot zero down on a safe limit or level of alcohol consumption for women who are trying to get pregnant or are already pregnant. Hence, most doctors recommend zero alcohol consumption for such women and ensure a safe pregnancy and healthy child at birth.
Alcohol also causes increasing the risk of health complications in pregnant women as they are likely to experience high blood pressure, vomiting and dehydration, gestational diabetes, and nutritional deficiency. There is a strong possibility that these complications can affect the health and the baby’s growth within the womb.
Dr. Hrishikesh Pai advises women who are trying to get pregnant or are already pregnant and wish to drink alcohol. He begins by saying it is unsafe to drink alcohol, especially during pregnancy. So, women planning to get pregnant should stop consuming it entirely. Also, it is medically evident that low-level drinking during the first trimester of pregnancy has resulted in long-term ill effects on the baby. There is an increased risk to the baby’s development if the mother frequently consumes high levels of alcohol. The effects of alcohol on the pregnant mother and their baby vary from case to case. Hence it is difficult to generalize the ill effect of alcohol for everybody
In case staying away from alcohol is difficult, they should opt for nonalcoholic beverages or avoid being around people who consume people. They can also seek support from their doctor or a medical counselor or sign up for a rehabilitation program, if they cannot stay off alcohol.
