Preconception health, health behavior, and preparations prior to becoming pregnant, play important roles in determining the outcomes for babies and mothers. Preventive care to improve reproductive health and avoid birth risk factors, optimizes the chances for a healthy mother and baby at relatively small cost. Korean society, however, has focused on perinatal and postnatal care based on medical-centered view.
The main purposes of this study are to explore the status of preconceptional care at individual and policy levels, and to identify risk factors for healthy pregnancy preparing behaviors in Korea. For the purposes, we conducted a survey of 1,549 women who have childbirth experience in current three years, and 20 depth interviews with mothers who experienced pregnancy in current three years and experts from various areas including obstetrics, education, and public health.
