Buffalo Prenatal-Perinatal Network, Inc.
Buffalo Prenatal-Perinatal Network, Inc. (BPPN) is a not-for-profit organization that has been in operation for over 30 years. The overall mission of the organization is to coordinate and collaborate with key stakeholders in Erie County/City of Buffalo, to increase access to and utilization of preconception, prenatal, perinatal and postpartum health care services in the community. The agency and its programs work within the community to help identify problems of adequacy, acceptability and accessibility in the delivery of these services, especially to those who are in high-need; to seek support for implementation of programs/services that help attain the agency mission; promote coordination between service providers who serve similar consumers/clients; and to provide informational and educational activities for providers and consumers, to help enable improved birth outcomes for the targeted population.
The programs operated by BPPN focus on improving maternal and infant health outcomes for high need women and their families, to help reduce racial and ethnic disparities in those outcomes and support and nurture parents.
BPPN serves over 25 zip codes in high-risk, low-income neighborhoods on the East and West side of Buffalo, as well as, South Buffalo, Lackawanna and Cheektowaga. Our target populations are African-American and Hispanic women since they demonstrate the highest rates of low birth weight infants and infant mortality.
Programs operated by Buffalo Prenatal include a New York State Department of Health Maternal Infant Community Health Collaborative (MICHC), a Healthy Families New York Program (also known as the Buffalo Home Visiting Program) and the Nurturing Fathers Program.

The Buffalo Home Visiting Program provides comprehensive home based services to families for 3 to 5 years after a child is born. The program has a single goal: to help parents meet the challenges of parenting in order to assure healthy development for their children.
This program grant was awarded to Buffalo Prenatal in October of 2013. The goal of the program is to improve maternal and infant health outcomes for high-need women and to reduce racial, ethnic and economic disparities in those outcomes.
Health care reform does a number of important things including offering a number of new benefits, rights and protections and setting up a Marketplace where Americans can purchase health insurance.

I’ve been in the MICHC program for almost 2 years. I heard about the program through my step-dad who worked as a janitor at the Buffalo Prenatal office. He told me about how the program helps pregnant women and their babies, so I called them to see if I could join, and they came out to see me, at my mom’s house. I just love my worker, Marisa, because she is so helpful and dependable. When I was struggling with some things, she listened and helped me to get some things I didn’t have, like a bed for me and a portable crib for my baby. I have told some of my friends and family about the program, so they can call for help.
The MICHC program has been helping me for about 10 months. I found out about the program at a church and I asked to be enrolled. My worker is Ashley, she is awesome, and easy to talk to. She helps me a lot, just lately she helped me change my Pediatrician because I was not happy with the one I had. The program has also helped me by giving me holiday food packs at Christmas and at Thanksgiving, a portable crib and diapers for my baby, and they also helped me with getting birth control information. I would definitely recommend this program to someone who needs help.
