U.S. maternal mortality rates are still too high—how healthcare providers are responding

The U.S. has the highest rate of maternal mortality among developed countries—almost twice as high as the next closest nation—and healthcare providers are working hard to change that. 

One factor that’s proven to reduce complications is childbirth education. Studies show that when new and expectant mothers are well-prepared for the birthing process, the risk of complications is significantly reduced, which is why OB/GYNs and Midwives strongly recommend childbirth education to their patients.

Historically, hospitals and clinics offered childbirth classes on-site, but today many are outsourcing this service to external educators instead—so resources can be focused on direct patient needs.

Amma Parenting is the childbirth education provider of choice for the three largest health systems in Minnesota and many other health providers throughout the Midwest. Amma provides evidence-based curriculum based on the latest research, taught by registered nurses and certified childbirth educators. And, because Amma handles the logistics from end to end, OBs, Midwives, and other staff are freed up to do what they do best—focus on patients.

More and more health systems are seeing the value of outsourcing childbirth education. Is your organization ready to do the same?
