The National Core Maternity Indicators (NCMIs) associated with the antenatal period present information on measures of clinical activity and mother’s risk factors between 2011 and 2019.
Data for each indicator are presented by jurisdiction of birth, and at the national level by hospital annual number of births, hospital sector, and mother’s Indigenous status. Some indicators are presented by remoteness, disadvantage quintile and other data groupings where relevant.
During the antenatal period:
In 2019, fewer than 1 in 10 women (9.0%) smoked in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy, a decrease from 12.9% in 2011. However, three-quarters (75.1%) of women who previously reported smoking continued to smoke after the first 20 weeks of pregnancy.
The proportion of women receiving antenatal care in the first trimester (3 to 13 weeks of pregnancy) remained steady in the majority of jurisdictions between 2011 and 2019 with around three in four women (76.6%) receiving antenatal care in their first trimester in 2019.
