Idaho Perinatal Project

Our Mission

The primary purpose of the Idaho Perinatal Project is to reduce maternal and infant morbidity and mortality and to improve pregnancy outcomes throughout the state of Idaho.

Our goals include the creation of a database for maternal/child outcomes; correlate, analyze, and make recommendations regarding maternal/child statistical data for the state of Idaho; provide education to perinatal health care professionals and the general public; and become a main resource and advocate in maternal/infant health.

Zika Virus Alert

Zika and Pregnancy: What you should know (website)
Information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Zika FAQs for Providers & Nurses (pdf)

Zika FAQs for Patients (pdf)

What should I do if I think I've been exposed?

  1. Are you pregnant?
  2. Are you a woman who is thinking about getting pregnant?
  3. Are you a man who is going to have unprotected sex with a woman who is pregnant or may become pregnant?
  • If your answer to all of these questions is "no," there is arguably no reason for you to get tested. Only 20% people who contract the virus will even develop any symptoms, and those who do will experience only mild and short-lived discomfort.
  • If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, however, you should contact your doctor about being tested for Zika.
