Putting Michigan's Babies First
"Perinatal" refers to the period of time, usually in weeks, leading up to and following birth. This is a crucial time for the baby and the baby's parents. Health concerns for pregnant people increase in this period of time, and providing quality perinatal care for both the baby and the pregnant individual is crucial to decreasing infant and maternal mortality rates.
