Rural Maternal Health Resources Available for Hospitals

What’s happening: The Health Resources and Services Administration has provided resources, including toolkits and webinar recordings, to support access to safe, high-quality maternity care in rural communities. 

What else to know: The complete four-part webinar series is now available. 

The rural maternal health webinar series helps rural hospitals understand how to achieve the new Birthing-Friendly hospital designation, engage with perinatal quality collaboratives, and implement patient safety care bundles. The series also addresses hospitals without birth units to support their readiness to care for pregnant, birthing, and postpartum people who need care.
