Definition and Source



Births to mothers who received prenatal care in the first trimester of pregnancy. The percent early prenatal care is the number of live births that received prenatal care within the first trimester of pregnancy divided by the total number of live births. Starting in 2004, "trimester prenatal care began" is calculated as the time from the date of the last menstrual period to the date of the first prenatal care visit. Prior to 2004, these data were obtained by direct question that noted the trimester the mother began prenatal care. Consequently, these data are not comparable to data from prior years.
