Birth Outcomes of Patients Who Received Early vs Late Prenatal Care
Early prenatal care is a pivotal factor in decreasing the risks of poor birth outcomes. The United States is far behind when it comes to maternal and fetal mortality when compared to similar countries. This needs to be addressed. In this research, I look for structural barriers that are causing the inequities in this country. Especially for black women and women of color. It is important to research why people either don’t seek out early prenatal care or do not have access to it, in addition to what healthcare providers can do to change this.
