To describe the prevalence of, and indications for, antenatal hospitalization among women who delivered live and stillborn infants.
We reviewed the records of a cohort of 1825 black and white enlisted women who delivered from 19871990 at the four largest Army medical centers in the United States.
Women with multiple gestations and those whose pregnancies ended before 20 weeks'gestation were excluded.
Records of all women with preterm deliveries and a one-third sample of women with term deliveries were abstracted.
Overall, 26.8±1.6% (mean±standard error) of the women were hospitalized antenatally.
