Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program
Information for Clients

The Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP) is a Medi-Cal program that provides a model of comprehensive services for eligible low-income pregnant and parenting women. Basic to the CPSP model is the belief that pregnancy and birth outcomes improve when routine obstetric care (prenatal, delivery, and postpartum care) is integrated with specific nutrition, health education, and psychosocial services. Comprehensive services are shown to reduce the low birthweight rate by one-third and to save approximately $2 in short-term Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) costs for every $1 spent.

The goals of CPSP are to:

  • Decrease the incidence of low birthweight births
  • Improve the outcome of every pregnancy,
  • Give every baby a healthy start in life, and
  • Eliminate health disparities among racial/ethnic, gender, economic, and religious groups.

CPSP Services

CPSP services are provided by a multidisciplinary team of health care practitioners and include:

  • Client orientation to comprehensive perinatal services
  • Initial assessment, trimester reassessments, post-partum assessment, interventions and follow-up services in:
    • Obstetrics
    • Nutrition

    • Psychosocial Services
