The Center for Disease control and Prevention (CDC) say one in 13 pregnant women say they drink, this almost eight percent of expectant mothers.

The CDC says that drinking among pregnant women in the U.S. remains an important public health issue.

The study found 1.4 percent of moms-to-be also reported binge drinking.

The CDC says there is no safe level of alcohol use during pregnancy, and alcohol use during pregnancy is the leading preventable cause of birth defects and developmental disabilities.
