on the wagon across the pond?

The UK is slowly starting to get more serious about pregnant women not drinking. Although the official recommendation suggests that light drinking (no more than 2 units a week) is still acceptable, a new campaign aims to inform/remind mothers-to-be that no booze=no risk. The signs will be placed in ladies rooms at pubs. Knowing the bathroom habits of sober pregnant women (and drunk un-pregnant ones) I'd assume that means they'll get seen. Still, it's a far cry from the requisite black and white signage behind every U.S. bar, where everyone gets an eyeful of the surgeon general's warning.
