Over three-quarters of women continue to receive first trimester prenatal care in 2017, ticking up slightly from 2016 (77.3% versus 77.1%, respectively). Notably, the provisional birth rate for teenagers fell 7% to another record low (18.8 births per 1,000 women), continuing recent trends. Rates rose for women in their early 40's.
According to Wu, "this may reflect changing career paths for women, and also advances in assisted reproduction".
The researchers found that the provisional number of US births in 2017 was 3,853,472, which was down 2 percent from 2016 and a 30-year low.
Rates of C-sections were essentially unchanged, at close to one-third of deliveries.
While the number of births nudged up in 2014, it's fallen for three consecutive years.
This study was led by researchers at the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics.
