Posted July 14, 2018 10:04:07Women are having to go through an additional step in their pregnancy: the appointment.
But the reason they do it is largely due to a fear of missing out on something.
A new study finds that many women are still being pressured to wait to have a prenatal appointment if they’re single, and are afraid of losing their job.
Researchers from The Ohio State University’s Department of Family Medicine surveyed 7,500 pregnant women across the country and found that 42 percent said they didn’t want to have their first prenatal appointment with their doctor.
Women who had the most anxiety about missing out said that it was especially stressful for single women.
They were also less likely to want to get pregnant when they didn.
In a separate study, researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University at Buffalo surveyed 719 single women, who were asked to rate the frequency of their first antenatal appointments on a scale from 1 (not at all likely) to 5 (extremely likely).
They found that when asked to give an overall score, women who said they were most likely to miss out on a prenatal visit were more likely to give a 1, indicating that they’re not sure if they want to do so.
The study found that single women who did not want to make an appointment said that they would rather get an appointment than not.
A single woman who was most likely not to want a prenatal trip, but still had a positive attitude about having an appointment, was rated as a 1.
This is a key point, according to the study authors.
They said that when women are more likely not just to avoid a prenatal referral, but also to avoid having a first appointment altogether, that could make it harder for them to find a partner who wants to date them.
While women’s experience of missing a prenatal is still very much an issue, it’s not a big deal anymore, according the researchers.
They also found that women were less likely than men to be afraid of being discriminated against.
In general, women were more supportive of women who are single, but when asked about the impact of their own race and ethnicity on their desire to have an abortion, they were more pessimistic about it.
This study, “Why women are postponing their prenatal appointments: Why do we still have to wait?” could be an important step in addressing this concern.
“It suggests that many young women are struggling with the pressures of being single, because they do not have access to prenatal care,” said Dr. Laura Drennan, associate professor of family medicine at The Ohio St. John.
She added that the study is a wakeup call for us all, especially single women like herself who don’t want their prenatal appointment to be delayed.
