As a PREGNANT woman, DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL! ALL ALCOHOLICS DRINKS INCLUDING PALM WINE! For women that drink Palm wine during pregnancy,
you need to take a closer look at her children. Fetal alcohol syndrome will definitely be there. She may not even notice until they’re in school and start showing learning disabilities.

I actually know a lady that had a miscarriage after taking 2 cups of palm wine. I never knew palm wine can induce labour and cause womb contractions… Pregnant women out there should stop drinking palm wine. It can cause abortion.

During my third pregnancy, I noticed I used to bleed just a little(dark blood) when I take palmwine, so I stopped. I had a friend who had same experience. Body differs.

I took palm wine when I was like 6+ pregnant & I started having contractions so I have to stop it.


Though a natural drink, palm wine is alcoholic and it is not safe or good for pregnant women irrespective of the trimester…. Drinking palm wine in the early pregnancy is even worse. Palmwine can cause miscarriage, pregnancy loss and even congenital birth defects if taken during pregnancy.
