Drinking While Pregnant: 'It Was Something To Look Forward To' (VIDEO)

Does a glass of wine here and there during pregnancy affect your baby? It's a controversial and personal question for many women. HuffPost Live host Abby Huntsman discussed the topic on Tuesday, and community member Kelly McMenamin weighed in with the advice her doctor gave her.

"Look, if you're drunk the baby's drunk. If you're tipsy, the baby's tipsy. But if you're neither of them then that's a safe way to drink," McMenamin said.

With that in mind, McMenamin would nurse an occasional glass of wine, and believes the effects were positive.

"I was just relaxed, it was some thing to look forward to, and I was think I was more relaxed throughout my pregnancy," she said.
