This project carries out an exploratory qualitative study using in-depth interviews to gain a better understanding of women's and men's attitudes about and experiences with consequences of unintended births. Using survey questions that better capture multiple dimensions of intention, such as timing and desire, as well as new data sources and more refined measures of childbearing intentions, the relationship between pregnancy intention, parental behaviors and infant and child health can be better understood.
