METHODS: Data were gathered from the database of the Newborn Hearing Screening Program. Participated in the study 1,193 mothers who delivered babies in 2007. RESULTS: Analysis of the demographic variables showed that most mothers were between 20 and 29 years old (47.9%), and 69.2% were married. Socioeconomic variables showed that 36.1% of the mothers did not complete elementary school, 55.7% were housewives, 38.6% did not have any personal income, 60.6% had familiar income between one and three minimum wages, and 92.5% gave birth in public maternities.  CONCLUSION: The studied population was considered in unfavorable conditions for the health and the global development of newborns and infants, for pregnant women within the same socioeconomic status constitute a risk category. These results emphasize the need for the development of health promotion actions for the investigated population.
