World Prematurity Month

World Prematurity Month

In Kansas, Black mothers are 1 ½ times more likely to have a preterm birth than women of other races. Accessibility to healthcare and prenatal education can help lower these rates to keep Black mothers and babies healthy! 

Support and education for pregnant women and families with newborns through the Pottawatomie County Health Department’s Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Home Visiting Program can help reduce the incidence of poor outcomes for infants and their families. Contact us today at (785) 457-3719 to set up your free visit!
