Welcome to New Mexico Perinatal Collaborative


Who We Are

We are a nonprofit organization in New Mexico collaborating with healthcare facilities, state agencies, community-based organizations, and directly with perinatal care providers to implement best practices and improve maternal and infant outcomes statewide. Our work is data-driven and informed by recommendations from the New Mexico Maternal Mortality Review Committee (MMRC).

We represent New Mexico within the national Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM), and belong to a national network of perinatal quality collaboratives working together to address rising rates of maternal and infant morbidity and mortality, that disproportionately affect rural areas and communities of color.

What We Do

We provide education, resources, and other supports to improve delivery of and access to high quality care. Our initiatives seek to:

  • Increase integration across healthcare disciplines
  • Collect and improve data to inform quality improvement efforts
  • Empower healthcare teams to offer the highest quality care
  • Ensure the provision of holistic and culturally respectful care

Who We Serve

We support hospital teams and perinatal care clinicians and build trusted partnerships with public health leaders, policy advocates, community partners, lived experience experts, and more to improve outcomes. In recognition of the range of preferences, resources, and cultural values of New Mexican families, our work addresses safe care and birth across settings and provider type.

New Mexico Landscape

New Mexico is a geographically vast and diverse state with rich cultural resources and traditions, as well as significant challenges. Maternal mortality and severe morbidity rates are steadily rising across the United States and are slightly higher in New Mexico. Maternal health care deserts are pervasive and a contributing factor to preventable maternal deaths in our state. Together, we are working to design a better way forward and build bridges of care that address inequities and reverse current trends.
