Objectives Severe maternal morbidity (SMM) is an important indicator for identifying and monitoring efforts to improve maternal health. Studies have identified independent risk factors, including race/ethnicity; however, there has been limited investigation of the modifying effect of socioeconomic factors. Study aims were to quantify SMM risk factors and to determine if socioeconomic status modifies the effect of race/ethnicity on SMM risk. Methods We used 2008-2012 NYC birth certificates matched with hospital discharge records for maternal deliveries...

INTRODUCTION: In South Carolina, 50% of all pregnancies are unintended. Intrauterine devices (IUDs) and the implant are recommended as top-tier contraceptive options for all women and adolescents.

METHODS: A pair-matched group pretest-posttest quasi-experimental design was utilized...

Objectives Caregivers of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience stress at greater rates than caregivers of other children with developmental conditions. Little is known about how families from different racial and ethnic backgrounds report family impact beyond individual stressors associated with caregiving. This paper aims to examine differences in family impact variables among caregivers of ASD children from different racial/ethnic backgrounds. Methods Using data from the 2005-2006 and 2009-2010 National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs, this retrospective, cross-sectional study examined family impact among caregivers of children with ASD...

Objectives A skilled workforce is essential to advancing maternal and child health (MCH) in a rapidly changing public health system. Little is known about the MCH workforce's existing capacity to maximize opportunities afforded by ongoing change. We assessed MCH workforce capacity in three areas: Systems Integration, Evidence-Based Decision-Making, and Change Management/Adaptive Leadership. We then examined associations between workforce capacity and modifiable workforce development strategies/resources. Methods Data are from the Public Health Workforce Interests and Needs Survey (PH WINS)...

Objectives To identify factors predicting maternal sex steroid hormone concentrations in early pregnancy. Methods The Infant Development and the Environment Study recruited healthy pregnant women from academic medical centers in four US cities. Gold standard liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry was used to measure maternal sex steroids concentrations (total testosterone [TT], free testosterone [FT], estrone [E1], estradiol [E2], and estriol [E3] concentrations) in serum samples from 548 women carrying singletons (median = 11...

Objective We examined the association between parent and child fruit and vegetable (F&V) intake, physical activity (PA), and body mass index in an ethnic minority and low-income sample. Methods The study sample consisted of 86 children ages 5-7 years (80% Hispanic) and their parents. Three parent health variables (healthy weight, recommended F&V servings per day, and recommended weekly PA) were used to create a healthy role model index. Associations between the parent index and corresponding child health behaviors and weight were examined...
