What is the ‘4th trimester?’ After the trimesters of pregnancy, the "4th Trimester" is the time after childbirth-ongoing growth, learning, adapting for babies and parents. Going from pregnancy and birth to motherhood is a challenging and beautiful process. newmomhealth.com pic.twitter.com/43JQf0QO5x

(PCORI) Work and Findings
The 4th Trimester Team recently completed a two-year project funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). For background information about the findings from the PCORI work with mothers and key findings, click HERE.
The 4th Trimester Project is changing the way America treats new mothers. Because “Motherhood should not mean risking your health, happiness, or life.”
The phrase “4th Trimester” emphasizes the interconnected physical and emotional relationships among women, infants, and family/others over the days and weeks after childbirth. Our mission is to transform the lived experience of the 4th Trimester through a national movement to spark real, sustained change for women and their families at individual, community, and national levels.
