Maternal and Child Health

Improving the well-being of mothers, infants, and children is an important public health goal for the United States, as well as a priority for New Jersey. Their well-being determines the health of the next generation and can help predict future public health challenges for families, communities, and the health care system.1  With the priority of improving equity, New Jersey focuses on many aspects of maternal and child health, including prenatal, perinatal and postpartum care and innovative resources, intraconception care, special child health, breastfeeding, and more.
