JOIN NPA for our 39th annual conference

March 14th - 16th, 2018 

Perinatal Substance Use: Evidence-Based Solutions and Support for the Family

at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital, California

In 2015 the National Perinatal Association and our partners, National Advocates for Pregnant Women, hosted the symposium, Pregnant Women, Drug Use, and NAS: Experts Share Science & Strategies that Help Women, Babies, and Families.

We knew that in order to improve perinatal care and health policy we needed to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders. So we invited parents, providers, community leaders, policy makers, and family advocates to come together in search of interdisciplinary solutions.

In 2016 we convened the NPA Workgroup on Perinatal Substance Use with the goal of creating evidence-based, family-centered care recommendations for the support of drug using women and their families. In 2018 we will share our work with you!

READ NPA's PRINCIPLED PROVIDER STATEMENT, SIGN ON, AND BECOME PART OF A GROWING DIRECTORY OF ETHICAL PROVIDERS WHO ARE COMMITTED TO EVIDENCE-BASED, FAMILY-CENTERED CARE.

AT NPA WE BELIEVE:

EVERY WOMAN who is a substance user needs reliable information to make informed decisions about their health care. Supportive providers deliver gender-specific psychosocial services to help women reach their goals.

EVERY MOTHER cares about their children and wants them to have the best possible outcome. When we listen to their needs and help them access services and support, we are empowering them with the tools to help them succeed.

EVERY BABY deserves a healthy start rooted in evidence-based care. And every baby deserves healthy parents and family who are supported by a caring community.
