Generalizability of findings is a critical issue in research on pregnancy and work.
The characteristics of a sample of 350 pregnant military women were compared with those of the populations of active duty women and active duty pregnant women.
The sample was fairly representative in terms of minority status and age.
The sample differed somewhat in terms of branch of service, rank, and marital status.
Comparisons of demographics and pregnancy planning between military and civilian pregnant women supported generalizability.
Unique aspects of military service and different access to health care among civilian pregnant women warrant caution in generalizing of findings.
