Better Birth Outcomes (BBO)

Better Birth Outcomes - This program provides prenatal health education, linkage and coordination of care with primary and specialty medical care and other social services, referrals to childbirth education and parenting classes, access to contraceptive services and overall care coordination to pregnant women with risk factors that lead to poor birth outcomes. Identified through administration of a standardized risk assessment tool, risk criteria include previous pre-term birth, alcohol or substance abuse during pregnancy, diseases that affect pregnancy, homelessness, low educational attainment and domestic violence.

Goals of the program are to:

  1. decrease the incidence of infant mortality and morbidity resulting from lack of adequate prenatal care;
  2. improve pregnancy outcomes; and
  3. reduce the incidence of prematurity and low birth weight.
