Why This Indicator Matters

Prenatal care (first trimester) helps to promote healthier births. Prenatal care for the mother addresses such issues as inadequate nutrition, smoking, anemia, and diabetes. For babies, prenatal care (first trimester) is associated with her lower likelihood of being born low birth weight, stillborn, or dying within the first year of life.
