3.f.i Increase Support Programs for Maternal and Child Health (Including High Risk Pregnancies)
Project Objective: To reduce avoidable poor pregnancy outcomes and subsequent hospitalization as well as improve maternal and child health through the first two years of the child’s life.
Project Description: High risk pregnancies do not end with the birth of the child, but can continue with high risk parenting situations. Women with high risk pregnancies due to age, social situation or concurrent medical or behavioral health conditions may need significant support beyond obstetrical care to grow a healthy child. Nuclear families and single mothers may not have access to functional parenting skill advice to assist them in the crucial first two years of a child’s life.
