A Toolkit for Implementing Two-Generation Postpartum Care

A Toolkit for Implementing Two-Generation Postpartum Care

Since 2020, the University of Illinois Health System (UI Health) has successfully implemented Two-Generation care clinics on the west and south sides of Chicago. This innovative care model combines dyadic care with behavioral health support and aid for social needs for postpartum families up to two years after birth. This model, known as UI
Health Two-Gen, has begun to offer advantages to postpartum families beyond traditional care.

This toolkit is designed to explain the UI Health Two-Gen model and to inspire healthcare leaders to integrate similar enhancements into their postpartum care services. In it, we outline our approach, provide various resources, and suggest ideas for other healthcare organizations to improve postpartum care, even with limited resources. We believe that adopting innovative approaches to postpartum care will be pivotal in addressing the maternal health crisis.
