Using data for 555,038 pregnancies conceived in the Czech Re- public in 1987-1990, we show that pronounced differences in fetal survival in the middle trimester ofpregnancy by marital status, edu- cational level, and labor force attachment become much smaller at full term; survival differences by age at conception and number of previous deliveries show relatively constant proportional hazards throughout gestation. Social inequalities in postpartum life chances have been documented previously, but we show that similar in- equalities exist before birth.
