Recent research shows that Ohio babies are at a higher risk for dying in their first year of life, and at a higher risk of being born prematurely than in years past.
Why does this matter?
Infant mortality rate is often used as an indicator of the overall health of a population. And babies that are born prematurely are more likely to have medical problems as they grow older.
Ohioans want to know: Why is this happening? And what can be done to address the issue?
The issue is complex and there are many factors at play. In our white paper, we take a closer look at the issue, the causes, and explain actionable steps expectant mothers can take to help keep their babies safe.
