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

outcome criteria of a larger study and is stated as: Are there

differences in birth outcomes between clients participating in

the Maternal Support Services Program and those clients not

participating? The sample will consist of approximately 600

records for women served by a comprehensive women's health center

in Michigan and delivered between July l, 1989 and June 30, 1990.

Records will be reviewed between September and December, 1990.

Date will be retrieved from the records and coded using a data

management plan. Descriptive data will be included for all the

variables. Three groups will be formed: l) 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, birth outcomes, will be 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. The

intent of the Maternal Support Service Program is to assist both

the pregnant woman and her primary care provider to promote

positive birth outcomes.
