Prenatal and postpartum care for women with substance use is important due to increased risk of poor health outcomes. The influence of substance use on perinatal care utilization is not well characterized, especially postpartum care. During this presentation, we will examine the effect of substance use during pregnancy on prenatal and postpartum care utilization in a nationally representative sample and identify maternal characteristics associated with inadequate prenatal and postpartum care among women with substance use.
