Objective: We have analysed the association between alcohol drinking before and during the three trimesters of pregnancy and risk of preterm birth of babies with normal weight for gestational age or with low weight for gestational age (SGA).Design: Case–control study.Setting: General and university hospitals in Italy.Subjects: Cases were 502 women who delivered preterm births <37 weeks gestation. The controls included 1966 women who gave birth at term (≥37 weeks of gestation) to healthy infants… Expand
Coffee drinking and risk of preterm birth
TLDR
Compared with no consumption, a low consumption of coffee during pregnancy may not have significant effects on preterm birth. Expand
Moderate alcohol consumption during pregnancy and the risk of low birth weight and preterm birth. The generation R study.
TLDR
Average consumption of one or more but not less than one alcoholic drink per day in early or late pregnancy seems to be associated with adverse birth outcomes in the offspring. Expand
Maternal alcohol intake prior to and during pregnancy and risk of adverse birth outcomes: evidence from a British cohort
TLDR
It is found the first trimester to be the period most sensitive to the effect of alcohol on the developing fetus, and women should be advised to abstain from alcohol when planning to conceive and throughout pregnancy. Expand
Pattern of alcohol consumption during pregnancy and risk for low birth weight.
TLDR
Alcohol consumption of 12 g/day or greater increased the risk for low birth weight, whereas lower consumption during weekends showed the opposite effect (mainly in nonsmokers). Expand
Increased risk of preterm birth among non- smoking, non- alcohol drinking women with maternal periodontitis.
TLDR
It is suggested that periodontitis may increase the risk of preterm delivery even among women who do not smoke or drink. Expand
Does Lack of Multinutrient Supplementation During Early Pregnancy Increase Vulnerability to Alcohol-Related Preterm or Small-for-Gestational-Age Births?
TLDR
Findings provide marginal evidence that multinutrient supplementation during early pregnancy may modify the risk of SGA births and preterm birth associated with alcohol consumption during pregnancy and may have important implications for pregnant women and women of child-bearing age. Expand
Does Lack of Multinutrient Supplementation During Early Pregnancy Increase Vulnerability to Alcohol-Related Preterm or Small-for-Gestational-Age Births?
The objective of this study was to assess whe- ther women who do not take multinutrient supplements during early pregnancy are more susceptible to the effects of low-to-moderate alcohol consumptionExpand
Glycemic properties of maternal diet in relation to preterm delivery and abnormal birth weight
TLDR
Maternal diet may be an important risk factor for preterm delivery and food quality may be relevant for SGA and LGA risks. Expand
ORIGINAL ARTICLE Coffee drinking and risk of preterm birth
TLDR
There was inverse association for coffee consumption in the third trimester of pregnancy in SGA cases compared to NGA (heterogeneity test between OR: w1), suggesting that coffee drinking before and during the three trimesters of pregnancy may be associated with preterm birth. Expand
Risk factors of preterm delivery of low birth weight (plbw) in an African population
TLDR
Examination of factors which may contribute to preterm delivery of low birth weight in a recent sample of Rwandan birth found that maternal weight, height, history of previous preterm and healthy conditions of the children in the family showed a significant relationship with PLBW. Expand

Does Alcohol Increase the Risk of Preterm Delivery?
TLDR
Assessment of the association between alcohol intake during pregnancy and preterm delivery in women attending routine antenatal care at Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark from 1989–1991 and 1992–1996 did not change the conclusions. Expand
Low-to-moderate gestational alcohol use and intrauterine growth retardation, low birthweight, and preterm delivery.
TLDR
Despite the observed protective effects of mild drinking on IUGR, the increased risk of preterm delivery with alcohol use supports a policy of abstinence during pregnancy. Expand
The Association of Moderate Maternal and Paternal Alcohol Consumption with Birthweight and Gestational Age
TLDR
Examining the joint effect of smoking with alcohol consumption revealed associations that differed by outcome; the authors found a synergistic effect for low birthweight, but not for intrauterine growth retardation. Expand
Fetal growth and moderate drinking in early pregnancy.
TLDR
It is suggested that risk of decreased intrauterine growth begins very early in pregnancy, and that fetal response to later alcohol use may vary with sex of the child. Expand
The Effect of Maternal Drinking before Conception and in Early Pregnancy on Infant Birthweight
TLDR
Infants born to women who reported drinking one to two drinks daily with at least one binge, or three or more drink daily with or without binges, had an adjusted mean birthweight approximately 150 gm less than that of infants whose mothers reported abstaining during (but not before) pregnancy. Expand
Maternal Smoking, Alcohol Drinking, Caffeine Consumption, and Fetal Growth: Results from a Prospective Study
TLDR
This study implicates heavy maternal smoking at any point in pregnancy, including solely in the early months, and possibly moderate alcohol drinking as causes of low birthweight. Expand
Effects of birth weight of alcohol and caffeine consumption during pregnancy.
TLDR
It is indicated that alcohol reduces birth weight, but do not support the hypothesis of an interaction between smoking and alcohol consumption. Expand
Recall bias in a case-control study of low birth weight.
TLDR
Given that OR figures are similar for most variables and no trend is observed in sensitivity/specificity, mothers of normal births can be an adequate reference group, using personal interviews to obtain information on lifestyle, and medical records for conditions. Expand
Prenatal exposure to alcohol: effect on infant growth and morphologic characteristics.
TLDR
Low birth weight, decreased head circumference and length, and an increased rate of fetal alcohol effects were all found to be significantly correlated with exposure to alcohol during the first 2 months of the first trimester. Expand
The Preterm Prediction Study: association of second-trimester genitourinary chlamydia infection with subsequent spontaneous preterm birth.
TLDR
Genitourinary C trachomatis infection at 24 weeks' gestation was associated with a 2-fold to 3-fold increased risk of subsequent spontaneous preterm birth. Expand
