A blood test showed that the woman had a level of 1.2 grammes of alcohol at the time of birth, the Telegraph quoted police spokeswoman Dorota Tietz as saying. A level of 1.2 grammes of alcohol per 1,000 grammes of blood is the equivalent of a bottle of wine or two litres of beer for an adult drinker but its impact is compounded in a new born's tiny body.
As a result, the infant was found to have a level of 2.9 grammes, police said. The mother could now now face up to five-year imprisonment for having endangered the life and health of her child.
Ms Tietz said, '' The baby's life is not in immediate danger but doctors fear the impact on her development.''
