Our Maternity Care Home Model on Alive and Well STL

Alive and Well STL is sharing our poster on our Maternity Care Home model on their website along with a list of resources for parents to help alleviate the stress of parenting. Our poster describes our maternity care model that addresses all aspects of women’s health including physical, mental, and environmental aspects, within a trauma-informed framework and the success of our model in reducing preterm births, reducing NICU utilization, and cost savings. The poster was presented by Jennie Oberkrom, Program Coordinator and Behavioral Health Specialist for the Maternity Care Home Model and Nicole Durel, Program Coordinator, at the Washington University 2016 Institute for Public Health Annual Conference on November 29, 2016. The conference focus was “Mental Health is Public Health: Innovative Approaches to Behavioral Resilience.” Our team had several great discussions regarding our poster and learning from others.
