This paper examines the prevalence of multivitamin-mineral supplement use before and during pregnancy, as well as predictors of nonuse, in 9953 women Who delivered live infants in the 1988 National Maternal and Infant Health Survey.
Ninetyseven percent of the women were advised to take mutivitamin-mineral supplements in prenatal care.
Sixtyseven percent of Black mothers took supplements during pregnancy, as compared with 84% of White mothers.
Multivariate analysis revealed that Black mothers ; mothers who are less educated, younger, unmarried, and non-smokers ; and mothers who participate in Women, Infants, and Children programs are at elevated risk for nonuse.
These data help identify groups in need of supplementation guidance.
