Project: ReThinking Rural Prenatal Care: Educate, Equip, Embrace
Location: Charlotte, NC
Architect of Record: Little

 

The US has the highest maternal death rate of developed countries, and we rank near the top for infant mortality statistics. Rural areas are suffering the most, where barriers including poverty, substance abuse, and food insecurity contribute to mothers having pre-existing poor health conditions before and during pregnancy, resulting in high-risk pregnancies that lead to infant and maternal death. We believe the solution is to change behaviors, and improve the health of mothers before pregnancy. We propose a physical care setting that inspires meaningful behavior change in rural health mother/baby cohorts to positively impact the maternal/fetal morbidity rates in America.
