A recent European study of women, alcohol and pregnancy revealed:

“One in six women reported use of alcohol after the pregnancy was recognized,” Angela Lupattelli, a scientist at the University of Oslo who took part in the study, told AFP.

Surprisingly, women who admitted to drinking alcohol while pregnant were more likely to be older, more highly educated, and employed.

Check out this Huffington Post article for more information on the study.

In another study, Dr Margaret Clarke, an eminent Canadian FASD researcher, found that in Canada 96% of mothers with alcohol-affected children are social drinkers, and only 4% are alcohol dependent.
