Complete Health Indicator Report of Prenatal Care in the First Trimester

Definition

The percentage of live births in the reporting period for which prenatal care was received in the first trimester.

Numerator

Number of live births in the reporting period for which prenatal care was received in the first trimester.

Denominator

Total number of live births in the reporting period. (Births where prenatal care was unreported were counted in the denominator.)

Data Interpretation Issues

The U.S. revised the birth certificate in 2003. Many of the new variable formats (such as that for prenatal care) were not compatible with the previous formats. In addition, not all states implemented the new birth certificate at the same time. New Mexico implemented a new electronic birth certificate registration system in 2007 and the new birth certificate in 2008. As states began using the new certificate, prenatal care rates dropped off, largely because of missing data. The changes to the birth certificate make comparisons across states and across years problematic. A description of the impact of the changes to the birth certificate can be found here: [http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr56/nvsr56_06.pdf] (downloaded on 10/02/13).

Why Is This Important?

Prenatal care is the health care a woman gets while she is pregnant. Health care providers recommend that women begin prenatal care in the first trimester of their pregnancy. Regular, recommended prenatal care reduces the risk of pregnancy-related complications for the mother and infant and increases a woman's chances of having healthy baby at full term.

What Is Being Done?

NM is one of six states participating in the Collaborative Innovations Networks (COIIN). This was a national effort focusing on Safe Sleep, Smoking Cessation, Interconception Care, Perinatal Regionalization, and reducing non-medically indicated C-sections and inductions before 39 weeks. NM was selected as one of four states to participate in the National Governor's Association Initiative to improve birth outcomes in 2013. This initiative involves key leadership from the Governor's Office, Department of Health, University of NM, NM Primary Care Association, NM Hospital Association, March of Dimes, Managed Care Organizations, CYFD, members of the provider community and other key stakeholders working together to align efforts toward improving birth outcomes.

Available Services

Text4Baby is a service available to expecting and postpartum mothers to remind them of recommended prenatal care and advice. It does not replace clinical visits for prenatal care but complements those visits. [https://text4baby.org/index.php/health-info-for-moms] The BrdsNBz Text Message Warm Line provides confidential, factually accurate answers to sexual health questions via text message. A young person simply texts a question, and a trained health educator responds within 24 hours. BrdsNBz serves young people ages 13 to 19 and parents who live in New Mexico. To ask a question, text NMTeen to 66746 and a trained Health Educator will respond within 24 hours- usually much quicker.

Relevant Population Characteristics

Pregnant teens 15-19 years of age, women older than 35, mothers with low level of education, race other than White, Hispanic ethnicity, being unmarried, lower socio-economic status, lack of health insurance, and women who recognize their pregnancy later than nine weeks of gestation are less likely to get early prenatal care.

Related Relevant Population Characteristics Indicators:


Health Care System Factors

Having health insurance improves availability of prenatal care services. Lack of health insurance affects both the timing and frequency of prenatal care visits, resulting in poor pregnancy outcomes such as premature birth, low birth weight, and complicated delivery. Availability of family planning services is another system factor that reduces the risk of unintended pregnancy. If a pregnancy is planned, a woman is more likely to seek early and adequate prenatal care.

Related Risk Factors Indicators:


Health Status Outcomes

Prenatal care can improve birth outcomes and prevent medical complications and their costs associated with premature births, low birth weight births, and maternal and infant mortality and morbidity.

U.S. value for 2008 represents only the 27 states using the 2003 standard birth certificate. New Mexico implemented the 2003 U.S. standard birth certificate in 2008. Data from 2008 and later are not comparable with earlier years. See "Data Interpretation Issues" in this indicator report for more information on data changes as a result of the new birth certificate implementation.

References and Community Resources

Doctors, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynegologists (ACOG) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) all recommend that mothers-to-be see their health care provider as soon as they are aware of their pregnancy, at least before the 13th week of pregnancy and to go back for at least 13 visits (for a normal, low-risk pregnancy) before birth. Going to a health care provider early and often will promote a healthy pregnancy and baby. M Kotelchuck.
