Exposure to alcohol during pregnancy can effect healthy foetal development. To inform public health efforts to reduce harm, it is important to understand patterns of women’s alcohol consumption before and during pregnancy.

More than 6,800 mothers in the Growing Up in New Zealand study were asked about how much alcohol they drank before they were pregnant, during their first trimester and after their first trimester.
