Pregnancy Pop-Up Village
Pregnancy care in the U.S. and in San Francisco is associated with stark inequities in access, patient experience and outcomes. In collaboration with community members, we developed a novel care model aimed at reducing these disparities. Pregnancy Pop-Up Village (PV) a community-health system-city partnership, will deliver co-located clinical care, government/public health entitlements, and wraparound services into high-need neighborhoods, as a “one-stop-shop”, on a recurring basis. Our PTBi-CA-sponsored project will focus on examining the feasibility, acceptability, sustainability and preliminary impact of PV as we build and launch this model with our first focus neighborhood, the Bayview. By evaluating both experiences and impact among PV recipients (pregnant community members) and providers (those delivering services under this model), we will better understand if this model holds potential as a sustainable and effective mechanism of reduce perinatal care inequities on both a local and national level.
