The objective in providing preventive health services of a nonmedical nature to pregnant women is to positively influence the outcome of the pregnancies. The evaluation of whether the objective was indeed met includes the determination of the amount and types of services utilized, the influence of the services on birth outcomes, and the cost of the service with respect to the outcomes. The research question this paper addresses is one of the outcome criteria of a larger study and is stated as: are there differences in pattern of service use received by clients participating in the Maternal Support Services Program and those clients not participating? The sample consisted of approximately 600 records for women serviced by a comprehensive Women's Health Center in Michigan and delivered between July 1, 1989 and June 30, 1990. Records were reviewed between September and December, 1990. Data were retrieved from the records and coded using a data management program. Descriptive data were included for all the variables. Three groups were formed: 1) women who participated in the MSS Program, 2) women who were eligible but did not participate in the MSS Program, and 3) women who were not eligible for the MSS Program. Differences between these groups on the dependent variable, pattern of service use, were analyzed using ANOVA followed by post hoc comparisons, if appropriate or by using Chi Square depending on the level of measurement of the variable. The future health of a community is closely linked to the health and well-being of infants and their mothers. Pattern of use of preventive health services during pregnancy may help to provide direction for future planning and programs and may have an influence on achieving positive pregnancy outcome.
