The relationship between certain maternal behaviors and adverse pregnancy outcomes has been well documented.
One method to alter these behaviors is through the advice of women's health care providers.
Advice from providers may be particularly important in minority populations, who have higger rates of infant mortality and prematurity.
This study examines racial disparities according to women's self-report of advice received from health care providers during pregnancy in four areas: tobacco use, alcohol consumption, drug use, and breast-feeding.
