    Interesting article. I also think transportation could be a major reason (can you imagine a situation in which a mother has to manage a newborn and a toddler on a bus, especially it is a hot or snowy day?…). In addition, sometimes it is hard to make an appointment with a family doctor. Also it could be that those with lower SES feel uncomfortable or judged when they visit doctors because of the subtle or not so subtle attitudes.
