What is it about?
In simple terms, this study shows that how much money you have and where you live can affect whether you get the right care during pregnancy, especially if you're a young mom. So, it's important for healthcare programs to focus on helping young moms who come from poorer backgrounds.

Why is it important?
Our study is unique because it specifically examines the factors influencing prenatal care utilization among both adolescent girls and young women in Indonesia. This is timely and important because maternal health is a critical issue, and understanding why some young mothers miss crucial pregnancy check-ups can lead to targeted interventions to improve their health and that of their babies. By focusing on this specific demographic and highlighting the role of socio-economic factors, our work can help policymakers and healthcare providers make more effective decisions to ensure better maternal healthcare for all.
