AbstractObjectives-Many studies have shown strong effects of pregnancy intention on antenatal care behavior in developed countries, but studies from developing settings have shown mixed results. Few investigators have utilized a prospective measure of pregnancy intention. This paper will analyze the association of pregnancy intention and the utilization of antenatal services in two states in northern India using a prospective measure of whether a future pregnancy would be wanted or unwanted.
