More than half of women drink more than the recommended limits during the first three months of pregnancy, a study has suggested.
Some 53% of women drank more than the upper limit of two units a week during the first trimester, with middle class women are more likely than women from other classes to drink more than the recommended limits during pregnancy, figures show.
The study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, examined 1,200 women in Leeds who filled out food frequency questionnaires, including information on alcohol consumption during the month before conception and the three trimesters of pregnancy.
If a woman drank more than two units a week during the first three months of pregnancy they are twice as likely to have a baby who was born "small for gestational age" when compared to non-drinkers, the researchers found.

Harriet Harman has again attacked the Daily Mail's coverage of the affiliation between a group she worked with in the 1970s and their links to a paedophile rights group.
Speaking on The Agenda with Tom Bradby on ITV this evening, she said: "The idea that the Daily Mail suddenly comes up with this idea that I'm an apologist for child abuse. I mean, how on earth could I apologise for that?
"It's not true. I went from being a man-hater one minute, according to the Daily Mail, to colluding with dirty old men."
Also on the panel this evening are advertising boss Sir Martin Sorrell, presenter Julia Bradbury and comedian David Schneider.
The Agenda airs at 10.35pm on ITV
