Maternal-Child Health

Doctor with pregnant womanHealth care delivery for maternal-child populations represents a key opportunity for improvement in Missouri. Working collaboratively, several stakeholder organizations joined forces to leverage resources, connect subject matter expertise and drive momentum to reduce maternal and infant morbidity and mortality, and improve the health care experience and outcomes for moms and babies in Missouri.

MHA and supporting partner organizations launched the Missouri Maternal-Child Learning and Action Network in 2018. Soon after, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and MHA partnered to join the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists as funded by the Health Research & Services Administration, Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health – AIM.

The Cuff Kit™ Project


MHA and the Missouri Maternal-Child Learning and Action Network are pleased to announce The Cuff Kit™ Project, funded by the Missouri Foundation for Health through the Preeclampsia Foundation. The Cuff Kit Project distributes comprehensive blood pressure cuff kits to maternal patients at high risk for or diagnosed with blood pressure-related issues, as well as to other vulnerable populations.

Organizations participating in the Missouri AIM Severe Hypertension in Pregnancy Collaborative will be given first priority in receiving the kits. Additional opportunity primarily will be given to FQHCs serving maternal patients in identified high-need regions of Missouri.
