Maternal and Infant Community Health Collaborative (MICHC) is a New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) funded initiative to improve health outcomes for women of childbearing age and their families. The goals of the Collaborative are to improve maternal and infant health outcomes including preterm birth, low birth weight, infant mortality and maternal mortality.
We focus on building systems of care for women in the three life stages of:
Preconception (before pregnancy)
Prenatal/Postpartum (during and after Pregnancy)
Interconception (between pregnancies)
Offering individual level care to those who need it.
Community Health Workers are available to assist high-need women access and navigate healthcare and other essential support services, conduct home visiting, and provide group and individual education.
