Table 1. Maternal and Perinatal Outcomes of Fewer Routine Obstetric Visits*
|*ARI = absolute risk increase (e.g., use fewer visits) to benefit one person; NNT (Benefits) = number needed to treat to benefit one person; NNT (Harm) = number needed to treat to harm one person; RRI = relative risk increase (from fewer prenatal visits). Note that for the outcomes presented here, the 95% CI includes the possibility of harm or benefit and thus passes through infinity.|
