2021 Year In Review
In this 2021 Year in Review, we highlight last year’s accomplishments, including the launching of our Maternal Action Network (MAN) Telehealth Project, a collaborative initiative with New York Presbyterian Hospital (NYP) and University Albany at SUNY…
Maternal Intentions (MI), a project funded by Merck for Mothers, provided clinical care coordination, case management, health education and tactical support to women at risk of having poor pregnancy outcomes due to chronic illness.
Community Health Workers (CHWs) conducted home visits and escorts to clinical providers, and Doulas provided both birth and post- partum doula care. Mothers in the program had a team looking out for their health, encouraging and facilitating their engagement with providers when needed, so they could have safe births and stay safe in the post-partum period. The team also provided resources and assistance needed to prioritize the mother’s health and manage their chronic illnesses.
