The objective of this study was to determine whether females with asthma in Ontario, Canada have increased health services utilisation (HSU) during pregnancy. Rates of asthma-specific, asthma-related and non-pregnancy-related HSU were calculated in a population-based cohort of pregnant females with asthma. Poisson regression with repeated measures was used to determine adjusted rate ratios and 95% confidence intervals of HSU during and 1 year after pregnancy, compared to the year before pregnancy. The cohort consisted of 103 976 pregnant females with asthma. Compared to the year prior to pregnancy, hospitalisation rat...
