In 2020, 81.3% of births in Colorado were to women who had received early prenatal care, beginning in the first trimester. Early and regular prenatal visits help support a healthy pregnancy and birth, as they provide essential tests and exams and can answer many important health questions. Colorado has made little progress in increasing this figure over the last three decades. To learn more about early prenatal care in your county, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
