Working statewide to support the provision of high-quality, respectful, community-based perinatal care


Founded in 2014, the NM Perinatal Collaborative is a nonprofit, multidisciplinary coalition of stakeholders seeking to improve the health of New Mexico’s women, infants and birthing families through the identification and sharing of best practices with perinatal care providers and hospitals statewide.

In recognition of the range of preferences, resources, and cultural values of New Mexican families, our work addresses best practices in perinatal and reproductive healthcare and safe birth across all care settings. Through this work, we engage diverse perinatal care providers from all areas of the state, including physicians, midwives, nurses, advanced practice clinicians, pharmacists, doulas, lactation consultants, home visitors, and clinical administrators.

We serve as the New Mexico representative to the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health, a national data-driven maternal safety and quality improvement initiative working to address rising rates of maternal and infant morbidity and mortality that disproportionately affect rural areas and communities of color. We are also positioned as the action arm of the Maternal Mortality Review Committee.

New Mexico has opportunities to improve birth equity and maternal health outcomes!

Give Them a Healthy Future

Comprehensive newborn maternal care in New Mexico can improve outcomes for women and infants, and we’re proud to currently be the only organization in the state that has made this their primary focus. The first and most important step is providing support for:

  • the providers who care for women and newborns,
  • hospitals that emphasize evidence-based care leading to quality outcomes, and
  • the women of our state.

We invite the participation of all healthcare professionals who interact with and care for women and infants. As a group, we can most effectively identify and implement the improvements necessary for greater quality care. We look forward to working with you.
