2020 Vision for a High-Quality, High-Value Maternity Care System

How do you make a change if you don’t know what you’re aiming for?

In 2008, Childbirth Connection convened a Vision Team of innovators in maternity care delivery and health systems design to define the fundamental values, principles, and goals for a high-quality, high-value maternity care system. The resulting consensus document, 2020 Vision for a High-Quality, High-Value Maternity Care System serves as a focal point to inspire improvement strategies, and formed the basis for the Blueprint for Action.

A high-quality, high-value maternity care system means care is consistently and reliably woman-centered, safe, effective, timely, efficient and equitable.
