Imagine what birth could be like if we listened more, learned more, and leaned in more.

Better outcomes for moms and babies.

Our Mission

The Virginia Neonatal Perinatal Collaborative is the state perinatal quality collaborative (PQC) working to ensure that every mother has the best possible perinatal care and every infant cared for in Virginia has the best possible start to life. We believe in an evidence-based, data-driven collaborative process that involves care providers for women, infants and families as well as state and local leaders.


Project EMBRACE (Equitable care for Mothers and Babies through Readiness, Access, and Community Expansion) is a quality improvement project with birthing facilities across Virginia to address topics such as maternal health, perinatal mental health, prevention care and counseling, human milk feeding, and reproductive health.

Turn the Page Project

This project gives voice to birthing people so they can share their stories of navigating the prenatal, labor, and postpartum stages in Virginia’s maternal health system. Our vision is that these narratives lead by example and help improve maternal care and health outcomes in Virginia.
