Healthy Moms and Babies Connecticut, through the Connecticut Perinatal Quality Collaborative (CPQC), is an initiative of the Connecticut Hospital Association.  It includes volunteer physicians, nurses, lactation consultants, additional maternal/infant healthcare providers, and state agency/community stakeholders.  It promotes high quality maternal and newborn care across the continuum by facilitating cooperation among hospitals and healthcare providers, supporting evidence-based maternal and newborn care practices, sharing educational and training resources, and gathering critical data.

The CPQC has worked on issues including perinatal health and opioid addiction.  It plays an active role in the Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) and Improving kNowledge to Decrease Early Elective Deliveries (INDEED) initiatives.

Sanders, MD, Attending Neonatologist at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and Professor of Pediatrics, University of Connecticut School of Medicine, and Christopher Morosky, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UConn John Dempsey Hospital and University of Connecticut School of Medicine, serve as Chairpersons of the CPQC.
