    • Abstract:
      The article presents results of a study of 45,000 women who gave birth in 1989 and 1990 and received prenatal care in public health facilities to assess the effects in a low-income population of prior family planning services on low birth weight and adequacy of prenatal care. The U.S. ranks unfavorably among developed countries with respect to infant mortality. Along with a slowing of the decline in infant mortality rates, this has contributed to widespread concern that not enough is being done to prevent infant deaths in this country. The poor infant mortality ranking is due mainly to a high incidence of low birth weight. Low-birth-weight infants are at an increased risk of dying, particularly during the neonatal period, and low birth weight contributes disproportionately to high rates of infant mortality. Many programs have been employed in an effort to improve birth outcomes in the U.S. Most have focused on the period of pregnancy, particularly on increasing the use of prenatal care. Less attention has been paid to opportunities for intervention before pregnancy.
