AbstractIn 1969, regionalization of perinatal health care was first proposed in Canada. One of the underlying premises was that certain mothers and infants would benefit from maternal transport to hospitals “where all resources are available to take care of any deviations from normal which might endanger the mother or her baby.”' In the United States in 1971, the AMA House of Delegates adopted a position supporting regionalized perinatal care. Eight years later. Congress in PL 93-461 outlined “National Health Goals” that clearly supported regionalization for accomplishing maternal-fetal transport.
