The way we were (drinking when pregnant)

Mad MenMad Men
One of my guilt-free pleasures when I’m on vacation is watching television shows that I usually don’t have time for. The one show that I recently watched that sticks in my mind is Mad Men, which follows the lives of the men and women of a Madison Avenue advertising firm. The show is completely addictive and not just because of the drama. The era itself is fascinating ….the fashion, the changing of society as it moves through the 60s, the sexism, the smoking and the drinking. When I saw Don Draper’s wife, Betty, smoking and drinking wine when quite obviously pregnant, I was stunned for a minute. But that’s the way it was. How things change. People don’t smoke like they used to and we now know that there really is no safe use of alcohol during pregnancy.
