Preventing harm from drinking in pregnancy: Low rates of prenatal alcohol screening means missed opportunities for intervention

Research Society on Alcoholism

There is no amount, pattern or timing of alcohol use during pregnancy proven safe for a developing fetus. Repeat: there is no amount, pattern or timing of alcohol use during pregnancy proven safe for a developing fetus. Drinking in pregnancy can have a range of harmful consequences for the child ─ including poor growth, learning and behavioral difficulties, problems with movement and co-ordination, and distinctive facial features ─ that are collectively known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). Screening for alcohol use during pregnancy is a necessary first step in preventing FASD, but studies have suggested that primary care providers do not screen consistently and can be hesitant to follow up with women who report drinking. New research published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research has evaluated midwives’ and nurse-midwives’ understanding of the risks of drinking in pregnancy, and their screening practice.
