Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate the health-seeking practices of pregnant women in a periurban area in Cape Town, South Africa. This qualitative study was based on 103 minimally structured in-depth interviews of 32 pregnant women. Most women were interviewed on several occasions, and a group discussion was held with women. The interviews were taped, transcribed, analyzed ethnographically, and. if necessary, translated into English. Antenatal care attendance was influenced by a number of factors, includingwomen's knowledge of the role of antenatal care, perceived health needs, booking systems, nurse-patient relationships, economics, child care. and transport. The expected benefits were weighed against the anticipated costs before decisions about seeking care were made. The findings highlight the importance of women's perceptions of quality of care in influencing their health seeking practices. The study suggests that considerably more attention needs to be given to this aspect of maternity services. (C) 2001 by the American College of Nurse-Midwives.
