Our Focus: A NEW Framework for Multidisciplinary Care in the 4th Trimester
For too long perinatal care focused on nine months of pregnancy and the delivery of a healthy infant at 40 weeks. Then we underwent a paradigm shift.
We realized that the care that we offer in first 100 days after a baby is born is just as important as the care we provide during pregnancy. The 4th Trimester was born! But care practices have lagged behind.
If we're going to adequately meet the needs of parents, infants, and families we need a new multidisciplinary framework for delivering comprehensive, collaborative care during the 4th Trimester.
This means not just addressing the medical needs of postpartum parents and newborns, but creating a safe and responsive environment that is prepared to address the physical, social, emotional, and economic challenges that many families face after the arrival of a child.
What to Expect
NPA is different... So our conferences are different.
You've been to conferences where the speakers describe the problems. You've seen the data. You know the statistics. Now it's time to do something.
At the National Perinatal Association, we believe that complex problems require interdisciplinary solutions. So NPA conferences bring together experts from across the perinatal continuum to share, listen, and learn from each other. Because we're interested in solutions.
Our conference objectives are directly linked to our education and advocacy initiatives. We invite you to join one of our workgroups.
