Background: Preconception care is an opportunity to change unhealthy behaviors, and reduces unplanned pregnancies and plays important role in reducing maternal and infant mortality. Considering the importance of these care services, this study was conducted to determine preconception care and its related factors in Groan's pregnant women.
Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted on 394 pregnant women referring to Gorgan health centers. Samples were selected by multi-stage Stratified sampling. Bayrami's researcher-made questionnaire, that validity and reliability Steps has been accomplished in Mashhad urban community, was used to collect information. Data analysis was performed by using SPSS16 software and chi-square test and KruskalWallis. P value less than 0.05 was considered significant.
Results: 32.7% (129) of women was received complete preconception care and 17.8% (70) had no pre-pregnancy care, only, 44.2% (174) of women used folic acid daily from the previous three months of pregnancy. Also, 251 (63.7%) of pregnant women performed triple screening laboratory test (FBS, CBC, TSH). Preconception care was done better in mother's with high education (P <0.001), health insurance (P <0.001), illness history (P <0.005), high family income (P <0.001) and nulliparity (P = 0.001).
Conclusions: Preconception care coverage and acid folic consumption is not optimal. It seems to be necessary to plan more precisely how such services are provided. The identification of factors associated with this care, showed that less attention was paid for low-income, without assurance coverage and low-educated people. Although these people will not have enough money to take care of their during pregnancy, health policymakers should take care of these services for free.
