The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence and correlates of alcohol use in pregnancy and lactation in a large representative sample of Australian women. Alcohol use was reported by 29% of women who were pregnant and 43% of women who were breastfeeding. Most women reported a reduction in the quantity of their alcohol use while pregnant or breastfeeding.
