As a maternal healthcare provider, you already know that staffing your facilities for mothers, infants and young children’s services requires a well-thought out plan of action. As CDC statistics tell us that the maternal mortality rate in 2018 was 17.4 per 100,000 live births in the U.S.¹, the need for a maternal health staffing strategy that covers all bases is integral for both mothers, infants and developing children.
To be successful, today’s maternal health care programs must deliver an A-to-Z approach that maximizes resources, reduces delays in providing services, delivers in all locales, including metropolitan or rural locations, and makes sure that all services are equitable no matter race or socioeconomic status.
As measuring quality is job one, providers of maternal, child and infant healthcare services must make sure that their workforce has structure, contingency plans and the right support from knowledgeable and trustworthy partners.

There has never been a better time to create a contingency plan for your facility’s maternal health services. During COVID-19, access to screenings and checkups has been limited, making it harder for expectant mothers to obtain the ongoing care that is required to not only carry a pregnancy to term, but to also make sure that both prenatal and postnatal care are delivered in the most beneficial ways.
Per a study published by The International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics², there was a reduction of 45.1% in institutional deliveries (P < 0.001), a percentage point increase of 7.2 in high‐risk pregnancies, and 2.5‐fold rise in admission to the intensive care units of pregnant women during the COVID-19 pandemic.
These statistics tell a story that will continue as facilities begin to see the results of a lack of maternal healthcare during the pandemic. In addition, The American Association of Colleges of Nursing predicts an increase in overall demand for nurses of 7% by 2029³, hence the need to plan accordingly has never been more imperative.
