In 2012, an estimated 22 percent of births in Minnesota lacked adequate prenatal care, placing those infants at higher health risk. Inadequate prenatal care poses risks for both mother and child and has been linked to increased rates of infant morbidity and mortality. Nationally, American Indian women are less likely to receive adequate prenatal care.
Minnesota Early Childhood Risk and Reach was developed by the University of Minnesota (Harris Training Programs in the Center for Early Education and Development) and Wilder Research in partnership with the Minnesota Departments of Education, Health, and Human Services.
