Maternal Health

The Maternal Health committee’s goal is that all women in Broward have healthy pregnancies with positive birth outcomes.

Maternal Health is closely connected to Infant Health. Changing harmful behaviors before pregnancy may reduce or eliminate adverse birth outcomes. However, continued challenges of racial inequality, poverty, and other social determinants of health affects healthy birth outcomes.

The Maternal Health Committee is working on addressing increasing the rate of early entry to prenatal care, decreasing the rate of health-related preconception, prenatal and inter-conception conditions and maternal mortality.
