    Don't know they're pregnant, don't have health insurance, can't easily take time off for appointments due to work schedules or home responsibilities, might flat out be in denial that they're pregnant, or know they're pregnant but don't want to be and so are ignoring the problem by pretending that they aren't.

    Money. Fear. Ignorance.

    Generally the main reason we get women into L&D who haven't seen a doctor all pregnancy is because they were doing something they didn't want to be caught doing, or something they didn't want to be told to stop. Drugs, drinking, etc.

    Lack of money/insurance/access to healthcare is probably the biggest one.
