Alcohol is the leading cause of preventable birth defects. This study was designed to determine the association between risky behaviors and alcohol consumption in pregnancy. Utilizing a retrospective, cross-sectional, observational design; data regarding the use of alcohol, seatbelts, and tobacco amongst 15,767 pregnant women was studied. Approximately 10% reported alcohol consumption while pregnant and 12.6% of these reported ≥4 drinks/episode. Tobacco use and lack of seatbelt use demonstrated positive associations with frequency of alcohol consumption controlling for sociodemographic factors. These results demonstrate tobacco use and lack of seatbelt are predictive behaviors of alcohol consumption during pregnancy.
