  • Emergency Preparedness and Response: Pregnant Women and Newborns
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a history of preparing for and responding to the needs of women and infants before, during, and after disaster events. This includes working in settings where disasters have occurred and developing information for pregnant women and their health care providers. This site focuses on several of the emergency preparedness and response resources developed by the CDC.
  • Women and Infants Service Package
  • These guidelines are a framework for the minimum and initial actions needed to respond to the essential health care needs of pregnant women, new mothers, fragile newborns, and infants in a crisis or emergency. They include general information, rationale, activities and actions, recommended equipment and supplies, and a monitoring and surveillance component.
