Charting the course Slide template  _Letterhead_ _Email Header_.png

Thank you to everyone who joined the Charting the Course meeting on December 2nd.

It was wonderful to gather some new faces with current NC MHI partners to share insights from different lenses. We were able to come together to define our 'North Star' in postpartum care, identify specific measures we can use to monitor our progress, and talk about the available resources and supports for postpartum care and how they connect and complement each other. Below, you can see graphic summaries of our shared space.

Detailed notes are being developed to accompany the graphics and will be shared in January.

From our meeting, please review and download graphic summaries of our "Course"

Postpartum Toolkit in Year 3

Last year, each site selected small change projects to improve postpartum care for their patients. In development for this year, we have created two pathways to assist sites in implementing small change projects. Sites can now choose between the Postpartum Preparation Pathway or the Quality Postpartum Visit Pathway. We hope to continue to refine and implement tools developed in previous years. Below are our postpartum toolkit resources:

Postpartum Planning Tool (In Spanish)

Postpartum Visit Checklist (In Spanish)

Health Information One-Pager for Birthing Parent (In Spanish)

Health Information One-Pager for New Baby (In Spanish)

Taking Care of You booklet (In Spanish)

Birth Control After Baby Booklet (In Spanish)

Postpartum in Practice bulletin and Billing & Coding guide

If you would like any of these materials printed/shipped to your site, please contact [email protected].

Support Recruiting New Clinics

Join us! The 4th Trimester Project team at UNC-Chapel Hill has support from the HRSA-funded NC Maternal Health Innovation Initiative to collaborate with North Carolina clinics to improve care for postpartum people and their families. We are actively seeking 10 sites (clinics or health care systems) across all perinatal regions - to continue testing and implementing components of the North Carolina Postpartum Toolkit. The toolkit is modeled on ACOG's Postpartum Bundle but built for our state. We also hope to build a new community of thought leaders and early adopters in improving the postpartum care experience! 

If you know of a person or team that may be a good fit, please email [email protected] to connect on details!

Please join us and spread the partnership opportunity!
