Maternal morbidity and mortality continues to be a critical issue in the United States. More than 700 women die each year in the US from pregnancy-related causes. New Jersey as of 2020 ranks 14th in the nation for its maternal mortality rate.
Let’s make New Jersey the safest and most equitable place in the nation to give birth and raise a baby.
Join our collaborative educational series to tackle the top causes of maternal morbidity and mortality. Led by a multidisciplinary panel of maternal health experts, discussion topics include Obstetrical Hemorrhage, Cardiac & Hypertensive Disorders, Management of SUD in Pregnancy, LGBTQIA & Pregnancy, Perinatal Mental Health, and Postpartum Follow-up Care.
We aim to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality through education that addresses systemic and social inequities, strengthens the maternal and child health workforce, and builds a collaborative learning community to drive sustainable change.
In addition to our ECHO sessions we are excited to host a series of Community Chats on select Fridays from 12p-1pm. Community members, organizations, and families are encouraged to join the conversation.
