Guidelines to Perinatal Care

Editors: Laura E. Riley, MD, FACOG and Ann R. Stark, MD, FAAP
Associate Editors: Sarah J. Kilpatrick, MD, PhD, ACOG and Lu-Ann Papile, MD, FAAP

One of the most valuable benefits of the AAP Section membership, The AAP Guidelines for Perinatal Care, was just released in its 7th edition. Jointly developed by the AAP and ACOG, Guidelines provide a single resource for the most recent recommendations on quality care of pregnant women, their fetuses, and their neonates. This unique resource addresses the full spectrum of perinatal medicine from both the obstetric and pediatric viewpoints, adding important new information, including:

  • Proven policies, procedures, and best practices for community programs, community and regional hospitals, and medical centers
  • Evidence-based recommendations for safe, effective diagnostic and therapeutic interventions in both maternal-fetal medicine, and neonatology
  • Recent developments in quality optimization, newborn care, inter-hospital coordination, antepartum care, postpartum care, obstetric complications, and neonatal complications.
