Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP)

What is the Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP)?

CPSP offers prenatal (before baby is born) and postpartum (up to 60 days after delivery) care for low-income pregnant women. The goals of the program are:

  • To improve every pregnancy and birth
  • To give every baby a healthy start in life
  • To decrease the number of babies born with low birthweight (increases the risk of serious health problems)
  • To lower heath care costs by avoiding tragic illness in infants and children

Maternal, Child, and Adult Health (MCAH) oversees the Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program in Shasta County. MCAH is part of the Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency.
