Rural facilities that no longer provide planned maternity care face challenges in providing safe, high-quality services to pregnant, birthing, and postpartum people who arrive needing care. Presenters will share innovative work that puts foundational skills, teamwork, and equipment in place to be ready and responsive to their patients' needs. This is the fourth in a webinar series on improving maternity care in rural healthcare settings.
