Summit Maternity Care Center
Birth Statistics

At Summit Maternity Care, we believe that evidence based care and education is the foundation to the statistics reflected in our practice. Creating trust, compassionate work, investing in the lives of our families greatly impacts how they view birth and in turn how they relate to others. With the highest  maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality rates in the developed country, we strive to change the culture. You will find our birth statistics much lower than the national or state average for maternal and neonatal health.
