Prenatal Trip Assistance

Prenatal Trip Assistance

“The prenatal trip assistance study will address Columbus’s high infant mortality rates by connecting pregnant women without reliable transportation to dependable, timely and safe rides to doctors’ appointments and pharmacies.”

Key findings

“Central Ohio has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the nation, with lack of adequate prenatal medical care being a contributing factor.”

“Often the barrier between expectant women and their doctors is as simple as reliable transportation.”

“The Prenatal Trip Assistance study, called Rides4Baby, launched in May 2019 and is examining whether innovative mobility solutions can improve everyday transportation challenges for pregnant women living in eight at-risk areas served by Mayor Ginther’s infant mortality reduction initiative, CelebrateOne.”
