This paper uses the King, Neuman and Johnson model to discuss prenatal care and identify the barriers to improving pregnancy outcomes. The paper explores the interventions, namely, comprehensive prenatal care programs and perinatal case management, and shows how they promote a community-wide approach to improving perinatal and family outcomes through the management of stressors that impede the pregnant family from obtaining health and human services.

From the Paper:

"In 1979 Healthy People, a report from the Surgeon General, established a goal to reduce infant mortality to fewer than 9 deaths per 1000 births.(1) In 1978 the infant mortality rate was 13.8/1000. Thirteen years later, in 1991, that goal was met with the rate at 8.9/1000; however the United States ranked 24th in worldwide infant mortality standings, a decline from 20th in 1980.(2,3) Despite technological and medical advances in maternal-fetal care, poor perinatal outcomes with resultant neonatal and child morbidity and mortality continue to perplex scientists and health care providers. The curriculum provides opportunities to work in small learning groups (3) for most of the learning exercises. Large groups are used for general instruction and modeling by classmates sharing their work and accomplishments with the class. Myriad studies have been conducted on factors that may affect perinatal outcomes. Increasing access to prenatal care was considered the number one factor in reducing infant mortality and morbidity over the past two decades."
