The LAMB Project is sponsored by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. It is both a population-based surveillance tool and a community outreach project. The LAMB survey asks mothers who recently delivered a baby about events that happened before, during, and after their pregnancy. The purpose of the Project is to better understand the causes of poor birth outcomes in Los Angeles County; to identify areas where help and resources are needed the most; and to improve the health and human services of future mothers and babies in Los Angeles County.
Los Angeles Health Overview of a Pregnancy Event (LA HOPE) Project Data
The LA HOPE Project is a survey sponsored by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. We are asking women who have had a fetal or infant loss to answer questions about their life before, during, and after pregnancy. The goal of the Project is to reduce infant death and promote the health of mothers and babies. The information from the survey may help us improve programs and policies for health and grief support.
