Promoting the well-being of childbearing women, infants and their families and communities
The Nassau County Perinatal Services Network (NCPSN) is a county-wide alliance of health and human services professionals and consumers concerned with perinatal health issues from preconception to early childhood. The NCPSN advocates for optimal perinatal care and parenting, promotes education and research and encourages a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary approach to maternal and child health.
The NCPSN mission is to coordinate and collaborate with key stakeholders in Nassau County to increase access to and utilization of preconception, prenatal, perinatal and postpartum health care services in the community. The NCPSN works within the community to help identify problems of adequacy, acceptability and accessibility in the delivery of these services, especially to those who are in high-need; to seek support for implementation of programs/services that help attain the agency mission; promote coordination between service providers who serve similar consumers/clients; and to provide informational and educational activities for providers and consumers, to help enable improved birth outcomes for the targeted population.
The NCPSN focuses on improving maternal and infant health outcomes for women and their families, and to help reduce racial and ethnic disparities in those outcomes.
