Join the National Perinatal Association in supporting pregnant women's access to safe and effective treatments
As a multidisciplinary organization focused on perinatal issues, the National Perinatal Association (NPA) has many members who have the opportunity to care for and treat pregnant women. Our goal is to ensure that pregnant women receive the highest level of care for both themselves and their unborn children, including access to proven, safe and effective treatments when needed. The National Perinatal Association asks you to join us in our request to ensure that all pregnant women have access to the most safe and effective treatments available, no matter which state they live in or what insurance they have.
