Maternal and Child Health in Central New York: A Qualitative Study


As part of the process we used to determine our approach to improving maternal and child health in central New York, we commissioned the New York Academy of Medicine to interview pregnant and parenting mothers in order to gain their perspectives and learn what the experience of being pregnant and parenting is like in the central New York communities we serve.

We used the information from these interviews to identify and examine what factors may have an impact on health pregnancy and parenting in central New York’s “hot spot” communities with high poverty rates that have a high risk of poor maternal and child health outcomes.
