Multiple Deprivations and Maternal Care in India

This study found wide inequalities in the provision of antenatal care, medical assistance at delivery and postnatal care among Indian women. Only 25% of women with a combination of low education, poverty, and who were underweight received the recommended number of antenatal visits, compared with 71% of women who did not have any of these characteristics; just 17% of these women gave birth with medical assistance, compared with 69% of other women; and 20% received appropriate postnatal care, compared with 61% of other women.
