My wife is 8 weeks and extremely worried as she was drinking one glass of wine a day two weeks before she found out she was pregnant. Will this have harmed the baby this early in pregnancy? Will we need to terminate the pregnancy?

There is no scientific medical evidence to suggest that drinking small quantities of alcohol in pregnancy is harmful. Be reassured that your wife's alcohol consumption is highly unlikely to have affected baby's development in any way, and no doctor would seriously discuss termination in this context. Normally however we suggest avoiding alcohol in the first trimester on a precautionary basis.
