- Data for this indicator are not available for update—baseline results reported.
- Smoking and alcohol consumption data will be available from the National Perinatal Data Collection in the future.
In 2010–11, based on self-reported data, over half of women (54%) who gave birth to an Indigenous baby and attended an antenatal visit in the first trimester of pregnancy, reported that they smoked tobacco during pregnancy.
Alcohol consumption and illicit drug use
One in four women (26%) reported that they drank alcohol and around 1 in 6 (17%) reported that they used illicit drugs during pregnancy (Figure 5.11).
While a higher proportion of mothers in Very remote areas reported smoking during pregnancy, the proportion reporting alcohol or illicit drug use was lower in Very remote areas compared to those living in less remote areas (Figure 5.11).
