  1. Abbreviations: y years, mos months, CI confidence interval
  2. aOverall percentages are expressed as weighted percentages, but counts are unweighted
  3. bOdds ratios and 95% confidence intervals were calculated using weighted logistic regression
  4. cAdjusted odds ratio (aOR) adjusted for department, prenatal visit number, maternal age, marital status, maternal education, gestational age, and parity
  5. dDue to the low number of women with unknown visit number (n = 21), the corresponding odds ratios and confidence intervals are suppressed
