About the event

Please join us in a discussion on how to improve care of people with obstetric complications in the US. We want to know your thoughts on who needs more training, how they should get it, and what is getting in the way of managing serious obstetric complications. What are we equipped to handle but not handling well? What do we not yet know how to handle but need to find a way to learn? We want to hear how you believe obstetric complication management can and should be shifted in the maternal health system in the US.

1. Some obstetric complications include: Oligohydramnios, polyhydramnios, gestational hypertension, preeclampsia, placenta previa, placental abruption, gestational diabetes, amniotic fluid embolism, hemorrhage, uterine rupture, cord prolapse, shoulder dystocia.

  • How are we doing in this area? Is there enough attention, too much attention, misdirected attention?
  • Which issues are using up resources and which issues need more resources?
  • How can we work to prevent these complications from occurring in the first place?

2. We know the most common obstetric complications that pregnant patients face, but let's drill down into how can they be prevented?

  • What is the opportunity/impact of remote patient monitoring during the 9 months of pregnancy?
  • How do we effectively triage the many needs and concerns of patients while balancing the capacity of the health system?

3. How can we work to prevent these complications from occurring in the first place?

  • Could there be MFM telehealth experts available to underserved and rural hospitals 24/7? 
  • What is prenatal mental health support like for patients with a history of mental illness?
  • What are some effective management strategies for obstetric complications, and how can we ensure equitable access to them?
