Mayor's Council for Women




The Mayor's Council for Women- Health Committee has recently put out a survey that will be used to inform the group's work on creating policies that help combat maternal and infant mortality.

It is important to learn about adverse pregnancy experiences across our community so we can work towards improving the issue for other women.  We define "adverse pregnancy" as any pregnancy-related complication or disease, including but not limited to:

  • Preterm birth (birth that occurs before the 37th week of pregnancy)
  • Birth resulting in low birth weight (infant weighing less than 5 lbs 5 oz at birth)
  • Development of pre-eclampsia in pregnancy
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Hypertensive disease (high/low blood pressure)
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Hemolysis
  • Elevated liver enzymes
  • Low platelet count (HELLP)
  • HIV

Your participation in this suvey is completely voluntary and will be kept confidential.  It should take approximately 5 minutes to complete the survey.

We need your help

Let's make a change together!

"Women across our community should have their work valued equally, live safe from violence, and have equal opportunity to succeed. My Council for Women will advise how we can work together to close the gaps in opportunities, safety and policy and empower women in our community."
