Fetal and Infant Mortality Review: Michigan Training 

NFIMR 7th National Conference

Pregnancy in the Context of a Woman’s Lifespan
Pregnancy is not simply an isolated event or time period in a woman’s life. It is influenced by a myriad of contextual factors that occur years before, as well as immediately before and during the pregnancy. As a part of the continuum of a woman’s life, and the contextual factors within that continuum, pregnancy itself has a major impact on future health risks for the mother and the baby as well. Understanding the import and influence of a woman’s health risks and across the reproductive decades on future pregnancy risks and outcomes is key to ensuring that the health of women is optimized, as well as that of future generations.

Fetal and Infant Mortality Review: Alabama Training 
NFIMR partnered with the Alabama Department of Public Health in January 2009 to produce this training with Jodi Shaefer, Patt Young, and Dani Noel, all experienced FIMR trainers. Topics include data abstraction, the maternal interview, and case review and community action. Thank you to the Alabama Department of Public Health for hosting the training on their website!
