Preconception care and severe maternal morbidity in the United States.
This study’s objective was to measure the association between preconception care and the odds of severe maternal morbidity among women with Medicaid using a secondary analysis of Medicaid claims using Medicaid Analytic Extract files. Findings showed that contraceptive services in the year before conception and routine exams for women with chronic disease were associated with decreased odds of severe maternal morbidity or death for Medicaid enrollees.
