To refine our understanding of prenatal psychosocial factors associated with binge drinking during pregnancy and the contribution of binge drinking during pregnancy to the duration of newborn hospitalization.
A large urban medical center in Wisconsin.
One hundred thirty-nine women (106 multigravida) who were invited to participate during a prenatal clinic visit early in their third trimester.
Prenatal measures included social support (Maternal Social Support Index), depression (Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale), stress (Difficult Life Circumstances), substance use (Monitoring the Future Substance Use Questionnaire and T-ACE Scale [a screen with questions about tolerance, annoyance, cutting down, and using alcohol as an eye-opener]), and matemal-fetal attachment (Matemal-Fetal Attachment Scale).
After delivery, a mothers'and infants'medical record review form was used.
This study suggests that binge drinking during pregnancy is related to longer newborn hospitalizations.
Effective prenatal interventions to improve the outcome of pregnancies for women who abuse alcohol during pregnancy should use early screening and provide augmentation of mothers'social support.
