The adverse effect of light or moderate maternal drinking during pregnancy on the well being of the newborn has been investigated.
The study group included 2145 live births in the obstetric units of 11 Italian cities between February 1989 and July 1990.
A detailed life style questionnaire was administered to the mothers.
Information on the newborn was collected from clinical records as well as from a clinical examination.
Both univariate and multivariate analyses were suggestive of a decrease in mean birth weight associated with maternal drinking during pregnancy, especially in women who also smoked during pregnancy.
This effect was higher in male newborns.
