[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: To examine the rates and factors associated with alcohol consumption during pregnancy among indigenous pregnant women, as well as the rates and factors associated with continuing alcohol consumption after a confirmation of pregnancy among indigenous pregnant women who drank alcohol before pregnancy in Taiwan. Methods:  
A total of 806 indigenous women who had just given birth in hospitals were recruited for this investigation. They were interviewed to collect their substance use experiences, demographic characteristics, mental health status, history of being physically abused, and pregnancy history. The rates of alcohol consumption after the confirmation of pregnancy in all indigenous pregnant women and the rates of continuing alcohol consumption after pregnancy among those who drank alcohol before pregnancy were calculated. The factors relating to alcohol consumption during pregnancy and continuing alcohol consumption after pregnancy were examined using logistic regression analyses. Results: The results of this study found that 26.6% of indigenous pregnant women drank alcohol at any stage during pregnancy, and 52.5% of indigenous pregnant women who drank alcohol before confirmation of their pregnancy persisted in drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Multiple parities, smoking or chewing betel nuts after pregnancy, and a higher frequency of drinking alcohol before pregnancy were significantly associated with alcohol consumption during pregnancy and continuing alcohol consumption after the confirmation of pregnancy. Meanwhile, being single or divorced, and intimate partner violence during this pregnancy were significantly associated with alcohol consumption during pregnancy. Conclusion: High prevalence rates of alcohol consumption during pregnancy and continuing alcohol consumption after the confirmation of pregnancy were found among indigenous pregnant women in Taiwan. Early detection of alcohol consumption and effective intervention for alcohol consumption during pregnancy are needed.
