Abstract
Study Objective: To assess characteristics of Rhode Island (RI) mothers who gave birth to a live baby in 2012-2013 who participated in family visiting programs in Rhode Island compared to those who did not. Study Methods: Analysis of 2012-2013 data from the Rhode Island Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System was conducted using STATA SE version 14.2. Primary Results: Among women in RI who gave birth in 2012-2013, 62% of women did not receive a home-visit while 28% received a post-partum visit only. Significant differences exist among women who did not receive a visit, those who were identified early, and those who received a post-partum visit only. Principal Conclusions: RI Family Visiting programs are reaching their target populations of mothers and their babies, but there remain families who are also designated at-risk who are not receiving home visits. Keywords: home visitor, risk, life stressors
