Bizzell Group Maternal & Child Health Services
The Bizzell Group (Bizzell) is committed to advancing positive health outcomes for pregnant women and children.
Bizzell has provided expertise and continues to support efforts “to help strengthen the maternal and child health infrastructure and to help to protect, promote and improve the health and well-being of all women, newborns, children and adolescents” by providing expertise in data collection and program analysis, best practice recommendations, and technical assistance in support these goals:
- Improvement in maternal and newborn health
- Reduction in child injuries, abuse, and neglect
- Improved school readiness and achievement
The United States lags behind other developed nations in preventing pregnancy-related deaths, and in 2015 the maternal mortality ratio (MMR) was 26 deaths per 100,000. Contributing to the MMR ratio is the somber fact that in the U.S., approximately 25% of all women do not receive the recommended number of prenatal visits.
Women who receive no prenatal care are three to four times more likely to have a pregnancy-related death than women who receive prenatal care. The need for quality medical care is critical during pregnancy, at birth, and remains high during the first years of a child’s life.
