Results of a global maternity study highlight a concerning trend, as most women surveyed say they had not been tested for cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, or sexually transmitted diseases in the past 12 months. The U.S. maternity care industry is actively addressing these issues with calls for increased assessment of various risks across the prenatal and postpartum time period. Several pieces highlight the importance of empowering parents in the maternity care journey for better outcomes, and a study from the AMA shows the home monitoring is extremely effective for increased adherence to BP control.
