Fast Fact – November 13, 2020

In 2018, 82 percent of births in Colorado were to mothers who had received prenatal care beginning in the first trimester of their pregnancies. Early and regular prenatal visits help to support a healthy pregnancy and birth; these visits provide essential tests and exams for an expectant mother and can answer many of their important health questions. Over the past three decades, our state has made little progress toward increasing this percentage, and the share of births with early prenatal care has remained between 77 and 82 percent since 1990. To find data on early prenatal care births in specific counties in 2018, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
