Healthy Babies Are Worth The Wait

September 14, 2011

There has been a lot of talk in the news and on social media outlets about the new March of Dimes’ campaign, “Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait” which has shined a spotlight on elective inductions before 39 weeks.  Even our local paper, The Pantagraph, featured a story about how our hospitals are joining the effort.

I was excited to read that Maureen Corry of Childbirth Connection recently visited Peoria where she spoke about “Preventing Elective Deliveries Before 39 Weeks” at Quality Quest’s annual meeting, visited OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, and met with members of the Healthy Babies, Healthy Moms Team. I was even more excited to see she shared her presentation “Steps Toward a High-Quality, High-Value Maternity Care System: Preventing Elective Deliveries Before 39 Weeks.”  Be sure to check out her article on how attempts at transforming maternal medical care is playing out in Peoria and check out the presentation slideshow below.
