Fifty-seven pregnant women who received inadequate prenatal care identified the factors that influenced their decisions related to prenatal care.
Data were collected in an institution that serves neighborhood clinics that offer free prenatal care and can be reached by public transportation.
Women were interviewed either prenatally (n = 23) or postnatally (n = 34).
The interview questions were drawn from the literature on the adequacy of prenatal care.
The women identified 22 personal reasons and structural barriers for receiving inadequate prenatal care.
The five most frequently cited reasons were small children at home, no medical assistance card, didn't know reason, sadness or ambivalence about the pregnancy, and just moved to the area.
