CARVALHO, Renata Alves da Silva et al. Assessment of the adequacy of prenatal care according to family income in Aracaju, Sergipe State, Brazil, 2011. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2016, vol.25, n.2, pp.271-280. ISSN 2237-9622.  https://doi.org/10.5123/s1679-49742016000200006.

OBJECTIVE:

to assess the adequacy of prenatal care offered to pregnant health service users in Aracaju, Sergipe State, Brazil, according to family income.

METHODS:

this was a cross-sectional study with 322 women living in the city of Aracaju whose children were born in November and December 2011; data were collected using questionnaires, including number of consultations, technical and laboratory procedures recommended by the Brazilian Ministry of Health (MoH); adequacy of prenatal care was assessed according to MoH criteria; chi-square test was used to compare proportions between categorical variables.

RESULTS:

prenatal care was considered inadequate for 89.1% of women, with no statistical difference for inadequacy of prenatal care according to family income (p=0.323).

CONCLUSION:

low adequacy of prenatal care was found when applying MoH parameters, regardless of pregnant women's family income.
