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.

We partner with diverse perinatal care providers from all areas of the state, including physicians, midwives, nurses, advanced practice clinicians, pharmacists, doulas, lactation consultants, home visitors, community health workers, and clinical administrators to improve birth and reproductive health outcomes.

We are the New Mexico representative to the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health and serve as the action arm of the NM Maternal Mortality Review Committee.

We welcome all partners in the work to improve birth equity and perinatal health outcomes.

Initiatives

We are working statewide to support the provision of high-quality, respectful, community-based perinatal care.

New Mexico Landscape

New Mexico is a geographically vast and diverse state with a rich cultural resources and also significant challenges. Maternal mortality and severe morbidity rates are steadily rising across the United States, including New Mexico. NMPC stake-holders work to build bridges across the state to reverse the current trends of this preventable health crisis.

Training Opportunities

We collaborate with partners to offer a range of ongoing and specialized training opportunities for New Mexico’s perinatal care providers.
