Extract

About 1 in every 7 visits for routine prenatal care in the United States is to a health professional who doesn’t specialize in obstetrics and gynecology, according to a recent report from the National Center for Health Statistics.

The data show that during 2009 to 2010, about 14% of women went to nonspecialists for routine prenatal care (NCHS Data Brief. 2014;[145]:1-8). Younger women were most likely to see a nonspecialist—some 20.5% of those aged 15 to 19 years did so, compared with 8.9% of women aged 30 to 34 years and 10.3% of those aged 35 to 54 years. In addition, the percentage of women who received routine prenatal care from a nonspecialist was higher among women in small towns or suburbs, 22.4%, compared with 14.4% of women in urban areas or 5.1% of women in large suburban areas.
