Late prenatal care is the care received starting in the third trimester of pregnancy. This indicator measures live births to mothers receiving no prenatal care in the first and second trimesters. The indicator is calculated by dividing the number of women who receive late or no prenatal care by the number of live births. We multiply the result by 100. In counties with relatively few people, a small number of women who receive late or no prenatal care may have a significant effect on percents from year to year.
