  1. Pregnancy planning and pre-conception counseling.

    Article - En anglais


    To estimate the percentage of women with one or more of four potentially modifiable risks who could have availed themselves of pre-conception counseling.


    We defined pre-conception counseling to be consultation that occurs shortly before a couple attempts conception.

    Thus, we assumed that to obtain pre-conception counseling, a woman must plan her pregnancy.

    We used data from a population-based survey of 12,452 new mothers in four states who delivered babies during 1988-1990.

    Mothers were contacted 3-6 months after delivery and asked about pre-conception behaviors and the planning status of their pregnancies.
