: : Who here has heard of a doctor telling you to drink wine while pregnant to keep the baby in if it is trying to come early? I have never heard of this until now and am actually SHOCKED ! I have a nursing background and think this is absurd. Has anyone here ever heard of this?

: i thought i told u about this...i was in preterm labor since 4 months with adeel even with all the meds nothing really was woring and we had to keep him in....thre last resort was 4 ounces of wine at night....i hate wine so much....but it was medicnal and i had to keep my uteros as calm as i could....i was told thisfrom the hospital my doc in the office and a specialist with preterm labor...so my guess its quite common for extreme cases....bu still yuck i hated the taiste so much...

I have worked in the medical field for years so I know the answer to ths question.

Wine and any alcoholic beverages are bad for the baby. They are good for preventing heart attacks. They thin the blood so could cause hemorrhaging at the time of delivery.
