This article describes acculturation level and family planning patterns among a convenience sample of 100 Hispanic women experiencing high-risk pregnancies. The majority were having a second pregnancy and had complications secondary to gestational diabetes or pregnancy-induced hypertension. Most were from Mexico, married, had little formal education, and were very Mexican oriented in their beliefs and values. Almost 75 percent returned for a postpartum visit compared with 14 percent who returned for the family planning visit at one year after giving birth. Age and gravidity were inversely correlated with return for family planning visits: gravidity was a significant predictor of number of post-birth visits.
