The reservations expressed about the accuracy of patient self-reports of drinking may be heightened when obtaining information about prenatal alcohol consumption, which may be subject to fears of social or medical disapproval. Thus, clinicians may seek collateral reports to confirm patients' reports during this critical time. The purpose of this study is to compare the self and collateral reports of antepartum alcohol consumption by 247 pregnant women, obtained shortly after the initiation of prenatal care, and again after delivery. Collateral reports of subjects were exceeded by the subjects' self-reports of alcohol consumption before pregnancy and in the antepartum.
