Drinking alcohol while pregnant ‘common’

Tuesday July 7th, 2015

Drinking alcohol during pregnancy is common among women in the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia – especially if they are also smokers, researchers warn today.

Researchers based their findings on three studies: The Growing up in Ireland (GUI) study; the Screening for Pregnancy Endpoints (SCOPE) study; and the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), which involved a total of 17,244 women in the four countries.

They found a high prevalence of drinking, including binge drinking, among expectant mothers, which ranged from 20% to 80% in Ireland, and from 40% to 80% in the other three countries.

While drinking alcohol while pregnant was seen across all social strata, the most consistent predictor of a heightened risk of drinking alcohol during pregnancy across all three studies was smoking, with smokers 17-50% more likely to drink while pregnant.
