Abstract

The objective of this article is to explore attitudes of an inner-city, pregnant cohort about general and HIV-related prenatal care. Responses to an interview at initial prenatal care enrollment were compared using Chi-square and Fisher's exact tests. Of 75 women, drug users (51%) were more likely to say that they would defer initiating prenatal care (P=0.03) and to minimize the risk of drug or alcohol use to the fetus (P=0.04), Most (85%) viewed pregnancy as inappropriate for HIV infected women and primarily drug users (P=0.06) would abort if HIV infected. Over half thought HIV transmission occurred most times or always. Only 20% had heard of a drug to reduce this risk, but 95% would take such a therapy. These inner-city, pregnant women disapproved of pregnancy ii HIV infected and thought the risk of transmission was high. They knew little of how to reduce this risk but nearly all would accept adrug to prevent transmission.
