Births to Women Receiving Late or No Prenatal Care
The number and percent of births to women who received no prenatal care, or care after the first trimester.
In 2005 Texas introduced a new birth certificate, changing the categorization of the inadequate prenatal care data. Now, inadequate prenatal care is defined as receiving no prenatal care or only receiving prenatal care after the first trimester. Data from 2005 or later cannot be compared to earlier prenatal care data.
