Institution

Eastern Kentucky University

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to identify barriers to early prenatal care of Kentuckians. These barriers will be identified through a survey of mothers who did or did not receive early prenatal care. It is hypothesized that not only lack of insurance, but also perception of risk, lack of education, means, availability, and knowledge of birth defects will be identified as barriers to care. Furthermore, this study will suggest agencies and other possibilities to prevent mothers from omitting early prenatal care.
