This report on health care in HUSKY A finds that mothers who gave birth while enrolled in HUSKY A were less likely than other mothers to begin prenatal care in the first trimester and more likely to have begun care late in pregnancy or not at all. They were also less likely to have had adequate care, that is care that began early followed by at least 80% of the recommended number of visits.
