Women’s knowledge and attitudes regarding alcohol consumption in pregnancy: a national survey

Women's knowledge and attitudes regarding alcohol consumption in pregnancy: a national survey This study surveyed 1103 Australian women about their knowledge and attitudes related to drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Most of the women surveyed (80.2%) agreed that women should not drink alcohol while pregnant and 55.3% had heard of FASD. However, women's level of education and their knowledge levels about alcohol in pregnancy were not associated with attitudes.
