O'Keeffe, Linda M and Kearney, Patricia M and Greene, Richard A and Kenny, Louise C (2016) Alcohol use during pregnancy. Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine, 26, (6), pp. 188-189. DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ogrm.2016.03.001.


Alcohol use during pregnancy is prevalent in Western populations. However, evidence on the effects of alcohol use during pregnancy for neonatal and child health is conflicting and advice regarding the safety of low levels of gestational alcohol consumption varies between countries. We provide a brief overview of current evidence on the effects of gestational alcohol use, its limitations and existing guidelines on alcohol use in pregnancy.
