Our partnership with Patient Safety Movement is important to us. Today at the 7th Annual World Patient Safety, Science and Technology Summit, the Maternal Safety Foundation presented its 2019 commitment. Here are excerpts from the presentation: .
“This year, we commit as an organization to continue publishing meaningful data that engages both patients, families and the public to raise awareness, as well as data that fosters a culture of accountability.” .
“Our commitment to transparency includes publishing hospital level rates of VBAC with a goal of identifying opportunities for improvement.” .

#TBT to meeting up with @iamjenniejoseph in 2011 when she was in town for a conference. So much has changed since then... and still so much room for improvement in maternal health. 💜 #hero
It was a busy day and a half with @ariadnelabs workshopping how to measure dignity in birth in a project designed to safely optimize #cesareanrates. Pictures: Christine Morton, Amy Romano and Jill Arnold.

Made it! Looking forward to this two-day meeting with the @ariadnelabs team and maternal health stakeholders and experts from around the country. 💛 #teambirth #DDI
This is so important for perinatal #patientsafety! Has your hospital verified its #LoMC yet? #maternalsafety .

Ensuring your patients receive risk-appropriate maternal care is a key strategy to decrease maternal morbidity & mortality. Levels of Maternal Care Verification program helps hospitals assess levels & build relationships. Read the Commentary "Levels of Maternal Care Verification Pilot: Translating Guidance Into Practice," in the Dec. 2018 @greenjrnl.

Worldwide, about 140 million women give birth every year.
All women have a right to a positive #childbirth experience, & to be treated with dignity & respect. 
Health is a human right. 
#Repost of a Placenta Accreta Spectrum (PAS) Disorder cesarean birth on @natgeo this morning.
Photo by @lynseyaddario | During my career as a photojournalist I have documented maternal mortality across the developing world but for my most recent @natgeo story, ‘Giving Life Can Still Be Deadly,’ I spent several months focusing on this issue at home in the U.S. and in Somaliland. The U.S. is one of only two developed countries where the rate of women dying from pregnancy has gotten worse since 1990. The rate of maternal deaths remains stubbornly high in the United States: about 14 deaths for every 100,000 live births. Black mothers are particularly at risk. Better basic care could help, as it has in the developing world. Pictured above, Casey Otto Hubert greets the world after he was delivered by cesarean section last June at the Texas Children’s Hospital Pavilion for Women in Houston. Loren Denise Haubelt, 30, required an emergency hysterectomy after Casey’s birth to address placenta increta, a condition in which the placenta grows into the uterine muscle.
This MMRC roundtable Meeting was held today in #Arkansas. The state is one of only two remaining states without a Maternal Mortality Review Committee.

Check out this physician report card the @rwjms sends out monthly as a part of their NTSV cesarean birth reduction quality improvement (QI) project. They were one of the National Improvement Challenge winners for Safe Reduction of Primary Cesarean Births. Thanks for your hard work on this project!

A trail camera on Kodiak National #WildlifeRefuge captured these tender moments with a Kodiak brown bear with her cubs. Bear milk is quite rich, with some of the highest fat content - around 20-30%! Think about that compared to the 2% percent milk we buy at the store.
