The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has partnered with the University of Michigan to convene a panel of maternity care experts to establish new recommendations for the conduct of prenatal care. Based on more recent evidence and experience, including significant changes in prenatal care during the COVID-19 pandemic, these peer-reviewed recommendations are published Women’s Health Journal. click here to read the article now.

The recommendations were developed by a diverse panel of maternity, public health, pediatric and equity experts, in addition to two patient advocates from across the country, to review the provision of prenatal care to patients of average medical risk.

Alex Friedman Peahl, MD, from the University of Michigan, and co-authors, state that “These flexible recommendations can be implemented through any model of care: traditional one-on-one visits, group prenatal care, or antenatal medical facilities; all providers of obstetrics: doctors, midwives, nurses or medical assistants; and each practice setting: those with high or low resources. The new model of prenatal care “represents a paradigm shift in prenatal care, replacing a one-size-fits-none model that has been associated with an overuse of low-quality care and an underuse of high-value services.”

“Peahl et al. present an overview of the new Michigan Plan for Appropriate Tailored Healthcare in Pregnancy (MiPATH) and provide practical guidance on how to implement these new recommendations in routine practice,” he says Women’s Health Journal editor-in-chief Susan G. Kornstein, MDExecutive Director, Institute for Women’s Health, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA.
