unintended pregnancy

Why this is important: Unintended pregnancies are associated with an increased risk of morbidity for women, and with behaviors during pregnancy that are associated with adverse effects for the infant.

Definition: An unintended pregnancy is when a woman wanted to get pregnant at a later time or did not want to be pregnant at the time of conception. This is measured as a percent of births and does not capture induced abortions; therefore, the rate underestimates the prevalence of unintended pregnancy.
