Study: 15 percent of pregnant women drink alcohol

Despite widespread warnings about the potential risk of drinking alcohol during pregnancy, fifteen percent of pregnant women in a newly published study said they had drunk alcohol at least once during their pregnancies. And although most of those women reported on an anonymous survey that they’d had less than one drink a week, some acknowledged drinking more than that on a regular basis, or said they’d had at least one binge of five or more drinks at once.
