Among other information gathered for 2011, there were fewer tobacco smokers – just under 9 percent – among women who gave birth that year. Preterm births – before 37 weeks of pregnancy – declined from 10.5 percent in 2006 to 9.5 percent in 2011. Gestational diabetes among pregnant women increased to just over 6 percent in 2011. In 2003, 4 percent of pregnant women had gestational diabetes. Diabetes can harm the mother and unborn baby. Many women who have never had diabetes may develop gestational diabetes when pregnant. Usually it goes away after the baby's born. It's important to see a health care provider following birth as many women who have gestational diabetes will go on to develop diabetes later in life.

There were 107,562 pregnancies and 86,929 babies born in our state in 2011 — 42,325 girls and 44,604 boys. A steady decline in pregnancies and births coincides with the economic downturn. There were 115,092 pregnancies and 90,270 births in 2008. The largest number of births was among mothers 25 to 29 years old. Teen pregnancies and births (15-17 years old) continue to drop. Teen pregnancies (15-17) fell 31 percent in that same time period, from 3,613 in 2008 to 2,526 in 2011. There were 1,519 teens who gave birth in 2011, down from 2,131 in 2008.
