  • A serving of wine or champagne is a 4 ounce glass. There can be anywhere from 5-25% alcohol in that glass. Each bottle will give you the percentage of alcohol. Each brand is different.

  • It all depends on the wine, champagne, and size of glass. Most experts say, why risk it?

  • It's all different. It really isn't worth the risk.

  • I'd be changing Drs if it were me. I am very much against women drinking alcohol while pregnant and would not continue to see a Dr who had such different views than I do. As for how much alcohol is in wine, generally most wines have between 12 - 14% alcohol by volume. Beer generally has 5%. Is a glass of wine that important though?

  • I had an occasional glass, like the normal wine glass and my son is perfectly healthy and very smart... Just don't make a habit of it
