But what if this person is already on meds? That is the case here.
: Could it be that the Mom-to-be is stressed and in the doc's opinion her stress could possibly be causing the symptoms of early labor?
: I would think that of all the "medications" a mom can take to relax, wine poses the least risk to the baby given that it does offer some benefits from the grapes as well. I've even heard that some docs think it's OK to drink wine (in moderation) while pregnant.
: Maybe this doc is "old school" and is tempering the usual "relax lady" response by suggesting alternative means?
: I never heard of this either, but is this plausible?
