Relation of the content of prenatal care to the risk of low birth weight : maternal reports of health behavior advice and initial prenatal care procedures.
Objective.-Numerous studies have found a relationship between the quantity of prenatal care received and birth outcomes.
Few studies have had the opportunity to examine the content of prenatal care.
This stuff examined the relationship between two components of the content of prenatal care: maternal reports of health behavior advice received and initial prenatal care procedures performed during the first two visits and low birth weight in a national sample of women.
Advice and initial procedures were categorized based on the recommendations of the US Public Health Service Expert Panel on the Content of Prenatal Care.
Design.-Interview survey of a nationally representative sample of women who had live births in 1988.
