Reproductive Health and Birth Outcomes

There are a variety of unexpected pregnancy outcomes experienced by Iowa families every year. Some of these outcomes include infertility, pregnancy loss (miscarriage), premature and preterm birth, congenital anomalies, stillbirth, and neonatal death. The Iowa EPHT surveillance system will assist public health professionals to identify environmental factors that may be contributing to unexpected reproductive outcomes. The EPHT will be used to inform policy to help improve the pregnancy outcomes of Iowans.
