OBJECTIVE: To investigate patterns of wine consumption among hazardous drinkers before and after pregnancy recognition. STUDY DESIGN: Using a standard alcohol survey, hazardous drinking was defined as either frequent or binge drinking with related consequences. Patients identified at our clinic during their first prenatal visit as being hazardous drinkers were interviewed during the prenatal and postpartum periods. The numbers of drinking days and drinks per drinking day were sought before and after pregnancy recognition. RESULTS: A total of 203 of 4494 women met the criteria as hazardous drinkers before pregnancy recognition and completed the prenatal and postpartum interviews. Wine was consumed by approximately one fourth (49, 24.1%) of these women, usually with other alcoholic beverages (45, 91.8%). Wine alone was not consumed heavily. Nearly half (46.9%) continued their wine consumption after pregnancy confirmation, although the numbers of drinking days and drinks per drinking day became significantly lower than before pregnancy awareness (p < 0.01). Thirty-five hazardous drinkers switched to wine after pregnancy recognition. CONCLUSION: Hazardous drinkers were inclined to drink wine with other alcoholic beverages yet tended to abstain or minimize consumption after pregnancy recognition.
