Nonuse of Prenatal Care: Implications for Social Work Involvement.
Bedics, Bonnie C.
Health & Social Work, v19 n2 p84-92 May 1994
Interviewed 44 women who did not obtain prenatal care. Identified four categories of reasons for nonuse: women's lifestyles differed from mainstream; stressful events took priority over prenatal care; women attempted to receive care but were discouraged, turned away, or given poor information by service delivery system personnel; and women did not want the baby.
