*Survey Question: Data in this table are recorded responses to survey question 27. Not counting the time you went to the hospital to have your baby, how many other times during your pregnancy did you go into a hospital and stay at least one night?

Percents based on fewer than 50 total respondents may not be reliable.
Interpret these percentages with caution. C.I. = confidence interval.
