This project aims to determine whether low to moderate alcohol intake at various stages of pregnancy are associated with negative health and development outcomes at birth and for young children at 12-24 months of age. The project also will investigate whether maternal DNA variations, specific dietary factors or other environmental influences can modify the impact of fetal exposure to low to moderate quantities of alcohol in pregnancy. A sample of 2,000 pregnant women will be recruited to participate in this project.
