Maternity Action Plan (MAP)

The Maternity Action Plan is a holistic approach to combatting maternal mortality and morbidity and is a guide to implementing and accelerating the goals of Nurture NJ. The MAP provides a directional path forward in four critical ways to address New Jersey’s maternal health crisis. By using the MAP and advancing Nurture NJ’s goals, together we will make New Jersey the safest and most equitable place for pregnant individuals to give birth and raise children.
