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 are 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.
We are looking for presentations and posters that relate to studying this topic or addressing such issues through institutional programs or public policy.
