Prenatal Care

Early and regular prenatal care improves the chances of a healthy pregnancy and help ensure the health of both the baby and the mother.

This section looks at the presence and adequacy of prenatal care in Douglas County.  Adequacy of prenatal care is determined by the use of the Kotelchuck Index, also called the Adequacy of Prenatal Care Utilization (APNCU) Index.
