Older U.S. Women More Likely to Drink While Pregnant, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Study
Published: Jul 20, 2012
Older, more educated U.S. women are much more likely to drink while pregnant, a new federal study released on Thursday concluded. About 14 percent of pregnant women ages 35 to 44 reported having at least one drink in the previous 30 days, an analysis of survey data by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found. That compares with 7.6 percent for all pregnant women and just 4.5 percent for those ages 18 to 24.
