OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of prenatal alcohol consumption and the extent of provider screening and discussion about alcohol use during pregnancy. METHODS: Data were obtained from a stratified random sample of 12,611 mothers from Maryland who delivered live infants during the years 2001–2008 and completed the Maryland Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System survey. Analyses were conducted using Proc Surveyfreq in SAS 9.2. RESULTS: Nearly 8% (95% confidence interval 7.1–8.4) of… Expand
Determinants of alcohol cessation, reduction and no reduction during pregnancy
TLDR
Differentiating prenatal alcohol use patterns can inform the design of targeted interventions and public health policies to meet the Healthy People 2020 objective for achieving a national rate of 98.3 % alcohol abstinence during pregnancy. Expand
Identifying high-risk subgroups for alcohol consumption among younger and older pregnant women
TLDR
Evidence that risk factors contributing to alcohol consumption during pregnancy may differ by maternal age is provided, and distinct high-risk subgroups emerged for the 25–29-year-old group. Expand
Antenatal care for alcohol consumption during pregnancy: pregnant women’s reported receipt of care and associated characteristics
TLDR
Although care for alcohol consumption is both recommended by clinical guidelines and highly acceptable to pregnant women, its receipt in public antenatal services is suboptimal. Expand

TLDR
The majority of women reduce their alcohol consumption once they learn they are pregnant, with some evidence this trend may have increased in recent years. Expand

TLDR
The percentage of women who consume alcohol during the preimplantation period is over 90%, and more than half of women consumealcohol during pregnancy, indicating that these behaviours pose a substantial risk to the embryo. Expand

TLDR
Prenatal alcohol use remains a public health issue among low-income pregnant women in Jefferson County, Alabama and research nurses detected it in the second trimester. Expand
Behavioural change in relation to alcohol exposure in early pregnancy and impact on perinatal outcomes - a prospective cohort study
TLDR
Public Health campaigns need to emphasise the potential health gains of abstaining from both alcohol and smoking in pregnancy. Expand
Changes in alcohol use and relationship satisfaction in Norwegian couples during pregnancy
TLDR
Both expectant mothers and fathers changed their alcohol consumption patterns when expecting a child, and drinking pre-pregnancy and relationship satisfaction during pregnancy were weakly related within each partner, whereas no association across partners was observed. Expand
Stressful Events and Continued Smoking and Continued Alcohol Consumption during Mid-Pregnancy
TLDR
The amount of cigarettes and alcohol consumption among continued users was not associated with severity of stressful events, and there was no association of anxiety and depressive symptoms with continued smoking or alcohol consumption. Expand

Alcohol Consumption by Women Before and During Pregnancy
TLDR
It is revealed that drinking during pregnancy is fairly common, three times the levels reported in surveys that ask only about drinking during the month before the survey, and women who binge drink before pregnancy are at particular risk for drinking after becoming pregnant. Expand
Alcohol use among pregnant and nonpregnant women of childbearing age - United States, 1991-2005.
TLDR
The findings indicated that the prevalence of any alcohol use and binge drinking among pregnant and nonpregnant women of childbearing age did not change substantially from 1991 to 2005, and the highest percentages of pregnant women reporting anycohol use were aged 35-44 years (17.7%), college graduates, employed, and unmarried (13.4%).

Brief Intervention for Prenatal Alcohol Use: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
Pregnant women with the highest levels of alcohol use reduced their drinking most after a brief intervention that included their partners, and recommendations include consistent screening for prenatal alcohol use followed by diagnostic assessment when indicated and if confirmed by other studies, a patient-partner brief intervention for the heaviest drinkers. Expand
A Survey of Obstetrician–Gynecologists on Their Patients' Alcohol Use During Pregnancy
TLDR
Efforts should be made to provide practicing obstetrician–gynecologists with updates on the adverse effects of alcohol use by pregnant women and with effective methods for screening and counseling women who report alcohol use during pregnancy. Expand
Underreporting of alcohol use in pregnancy: relationship to alcohol problem history.
TLDR
It is indicated that while the MAST may be a better indicator of risk than self-reports of drinking, it is also not sufficient for the purpose and further work examining other measures and techniques for obtaining drinking information is indicated. Expand
Brief intervention for alcohol use by pregnant women.
TLDR
The success of brief intervention conducted in a community setting by nonmedical professionals has significant implications for national public health policies. Expand
The Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System: design, questionnaire, data collection and response rates. PRAMS Working Group.
TLDR
Mail and telephone surveillance of new mothers can yield adequate response rates in selected population groups, but rates were lower for Black mothers, mothers of low birthweight infants, unmarried mothers and mothers with less than 12 years of education. Expand
Preventing alcohol-exposed pregnancies: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
A brief motivational intervention to reduce the risk of an alcohol-exposed pregnancy (AEP) in preconceptional women by focusing on both risk drinking and ineffective contraception use can reduce therisk of an AEP. Expand
Detecting risk drinking during pregnancy: a comparison of four screening questionnaires.
TLDR
Embedded versions of TWEAK and T-ACE were both highly sensitive to periconceptional risk drinking in this population of African-American obstetric patients, suggesting that MAST and CAGE administration improves its performance. Expand
Brief screening questionnaires to identify problem drinking during pregnancy: a systematic review.
TLDR
T-ACE, TWEAK and AUDit-C show promise for screening for risk drinking, and AUDIT-C may also be useful for identifying alcohol dependency or abuse, however, their performance as stand-alone tools is uncertain, and further evaluation of questionnaires for prenatal alcohol use is warranted. Expand
