Women’s pre-pregnancy preventive healthcare engagement


Pre-pregnancy preventive healthcare engagement can help women prepare for a healthy pregnancy before becoming pregnant and prevent pregnancy-related complications. Despite its importance, few studies have investigated participation in pre-pregnancy healthcare, and many reproductive-aged women in Australia are unaware of the need for preconception care. This study aims to examine the factors influencing women's participation in pre-pregnancy preventive healthcare and their impact on pregnancy-related complications. This study will generate evidence on women's pre-pregnancy preventive healthcare engagement as well as its effect in reducing pregnancy-related complications in a cohort of mothers (1989-95 cohort)
