Mohawk Valley Perinatal Network works with health and human service professionals and consumers to improve the overall health of communities in the Mohawk Valley. Our mission is to improve birth outcomes and maternal, child and family health, facilitate collaboration among providers and community organizations and advocate for change. We are one of the only organizations in our community to serve as a hub for perinatal information and services for both providers and consumers, providing training and education, making connections, assessing and addressing trends and issues, and assuring access to care for women, children and families. While the Network is concerned with improving birth outcomes for all women and their families, it specifically targets women of low income, in rural areas, the African American community, immigrants and refugees and adolescents due to the unique barriers faced by women in these groups.
Mohawk Valley Perinatal Network helps nearly 2,000 adults and children in Oneida, Herkimer, and Madison counties each year. The assistance we provide results in lower health care costs, better health care, and healthier mothers, babies, and children. The Perinatal Network provides a vital bridge for uninsured and low-income families in our community. Your gift allows us to build on these services – and continue to keep individuals and families healthy.
