Abstract

This paper has three objectives: 1) to review data on the prevalence of chronic disease among women of reproductive age; 2) to establish that chronic diseases are an important influence on perinatal health; and 3) to emphasize opportunities where women's health and perinatal health can intersect. This involves broadening strategies aimed at improving perinatal health to emphasize a woman's overall health, regardless of childbearing status or plans, and using perinatal health care as a bridge to ongoing care for women. These issues are discussed in the context of a continuum often used to organize perinatal health interventions.
