My prof a few months ago told my clinical medicine class that drinking and breastfeeding was fine so at the very least there should be a more accepting generation of naturopathic doctors if a few years time. Many in the class seemed surprised when she said it. 
Do you remember what kind of beer you were drinking? ie. brand, flavour etc? I have not noticed any reactions from my son but perhaps there is a type of beer to be avoided.
I have a drink most nights and I still nurse. ( I didn't drink when I was co-sleeping though). Since I learned that blood alcohol level= milk alcohol level I was not concerned about it. Also, my naturopath and the LLL encouraged me to drink dark beer to increase my milk supply because hops can have that effect. I drink in public and nurse and no one has ever called me on it.

I'm glad you asked this question, I have a lot of trouble staying hydrated with me one year old sucking me dry. Every time I try to drink, he runs over and tries to play with the glass.

Thank you, I read through the thread but it is unfortunately a little old and we have since lost all our midwives in Halifax. There were three here when we started trying to have a baby. The whole program shut down the month before I found out I was pregnant. 
If there are any underground midwives in Halifax who would like to deliver my baby, please let me know (you can send a private message). I would love a home birth but that isn't an option here unless I go unassisted and though I am 90% confident in my ability to birth unassisted, having someone qualified or experienced would make it possible for me. 
I have never heard of a travelling midwife. How do you get a hold of one?
