The postpartum period offers rich opportunities for enhancing the well-being of women and affirming the value of their health and happiness. Yet, the weeks and months after childbirth have been a neglected area for women’s health in the US and in many settings. Through woman-centered engagement, the 4th Trimester Project team has co-developed priority areas for research, policy, communication, and health care service delivery.

Learning Objectives:

Describe what is meant by the term the “4th Trimester.”

Discuss ways to improve maternal safety, health, and well-being in the 4th Trimester and beyond.
