Abstract

The purpose of the fact sheet is to highlight the health status and health behaviors during pregnancy of women whose labor and delivery costs were reimbursed by Medicaid by maternal age and race/ethnicity. This information may be used to guide provider outreach and education efforts to improve women’s pre-pregnancy health, to identify intervention strategies to manage gestational diabetes, and to support smoking cessation during pregnancy among women with Medicaid as their source of medical insurance.
