Posted 6/7/2022 (updated 6/17/2022)

Improving Engagement of Pregnant & Postpartum Individuals in Prenatal Care, Treatment, & Recovery Supports

This dialogue-centric session featured three RCORP-NAS grantees who highlighted some best practice approaches they are utilizing to successfully engage difficult-to-reach pregnant and postpartum individuals who use drugs and are facing steep obstacles on their pathway to recovery, including very valid fears of becoming penalized by the child welfare, health care and criminal justice systems. Session participants were encouraged to share their own experiences, with the goal of generating dignity-centered solutions that improve engagement in prenatal care, treatment and supportive services and lead to better maternal and child health outcomes.
