Ask the Expert: The Fourth Trimester: A new paradigm for preventing maternal mortality

October 19, 2018

Given the urgent need to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) released a revised Committee Opinion to reinforce the importance of the “fourth trimester,” and to propose a new paradigm for postpartum care. Redefining postpartum care is an initiative set forth by ACOG’s most recent past president Haywood L. Brown, M.D. Dr. Brown will share more on the fourth trimester paradigm in the context of Healthy Start during this Ask the Expert webinar.
