The training and parking are free! Registration information for ALL trainings offered will be distributed per our CPSP provider email list.


History:

The Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP) provides a wide range of culturally competent services to Medi-Cal pregnant women, from conception through 60 days postpartum.  In addition to standard obstetric services, women receive enhanced services in the areas of nutrition, psychosocial, and health education. The Legislature enacted CPSP in 1984 in response to the OB Access Project, which found that a comprehensive approach reduced both low birth weight rates and health care costs in women and infants. CPSP became a Medi-Cal benefit in 1987. Medi-Cal providers who provide services to pregnant women may apply to become a CPSP provider. Medi-Cal Managed Health Care Plans are required to provide access to CPSP services for pregnant Medi-Cal eligible recipients..


Mission:

Through effective and collaborative teamwork, CPSP promotes and coordinates the delivery of early, continuous and quality comprehensive perinatal services to pregnant and postpartum women and their infants by public and private obstetrical providers.

Vision:

All pregnant and postpartum women in Los Angeles County receive comprehensive perinatal health services through an integrated and seamless system designed to optimize maternal and child health outcomes.

Goals:

  • To decrease the incidence of low birth weight in infants
  • To improve the outcome of every pregnancy
  • To give every baby a healthy start in life
  • To lower health care costs by preventing catastrophic and chronic illness in infants and children

Syphilis in Women and Congenital Syphilis  

Los Angeles County has recently seen an increase in the number of syphilis cases among women. These increases have also led to a dramatic increase of congenital syphilis.

Congenital syphilis is a preventable condition that results from untreated syphilis during pregnancy, with potentially severe consequences for the infected infants including stillbirth, neonatal death, and birth defects.

Healthcare providers play a critical role in addressing the syphilis epidemic by identifying and treating infected patients. Proper screening at the first prenatal visit, early in the third trimester, and at delivery is key. Click here for our syphilis in women action kit.


Zika Virus Update

Zika is a mosquito-borne virus that can be passed from a pregnant woman to her unborn child. Please click here for important information.


Pertussis (Whooping Cough)

Pertussis is on the rise. We strongly recommend that CPSP providers offer/refer pregnant patients for Tdap during 3rd trimester to protect newborns from pertussis. Visit CPSP website or to learn more about what your office can do to prevent pertussis.
