Short Description
Provides services to women in the city of Chicago who have experienced a fetal or neonatal loss and have been referred from the Fetal Infant Mortality Review project, postpartum teens, postpartum women referred from selected Better Birth Outcomes agencies following the end of their 6-week postpartum period; and postpartum women released from Cermak Health Services who delivered while incarcerated in the Cook County Jail. Eligible women have multiple medical and/or social risk factors that put them at increased risk of having less than optimal pregnancy intervals (optimal is 18-24 months apart) between subsequent pregnancies. This population of women is at increased risk of a subsequent pregnancy resulting in preterm birth or very low/low birth weight, as well as other maternal and infant complications. Participation is voluntary.

Objectives and Goals
This project provides intensive interconceptional case management services to a target population consisting of: women who have experienced a fetal or neonatal loss referred from the Fetal Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) project, postpartum teens, postpartum women referred from selected Better Birth Outcomes (BBO) sites in the Chicago area, and postpartum women released from Cermak Health Services who delivered while incarcerated in the Cook County Jail.
