  1. Patient attitudes concerning health behaviors during pregnancy : initial development of a questionnaire.

    Article - En anglais

    The major determinant of infant mortality in the United States is low birthweight (LBW).

    Health behaviors related to LBW are inadequate prenatal care, poor nutrition, smoking, and moderate to heavy alcohol use.

    Before interventions can be designed to assist women in modifying these health behaviors, more must be understood about their causes.

    The Health Belief Model (HBM) is a framework for analyzing beliefs that motivate health behaviors and is well established as a model for understanding health behavior decisions.

    The chief aim of this study was to develop an instrument to assess women's health beliefs during pregnancy.
