Mid-Coastal California Perinatal Outreach Program

The Mid-Coastal California Perinatal Outreach Program (MCCPOP) is located in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Neonatal and Developmental Medicine, at Stanford University. MCCPOP collaborates closely with the Charles B. and Ann L. Johnson Center for Pregnancy, and Newborn Services at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital (LPCH). The Johnson Center, housed in the only Children's Hospital in the Bay Area, -- and one of the few in the United States --  offers obstetrical, neonatal and developmental medicine services all at one location.


MCCPOP provides obstetrical and neonatal education to healthcare providers in the mid-coastal region of the State of California.  Included in all of our educational programs and offerings are the following core values, as we strive to improve birth outcomes for pregnant women and their infants:


Educational opportunities at local hospitals include lectures, journal clubs, workshops, attendance at selected Morbidity and Mortality Conferences, peer reviews and an annual Perinatal Potpourri Conference that features Stanford faculty and national speakers.

Other services provided by MCCPOP include site visits to review compliance with state regulations, a quarterly networking meeting for nursing leaders, preceptorships at LPCH for healthcare professionals and 24 hour a day/7 days a week consultation services with providers at LPCH and Stanford University Hospital.


The Mid-Coastal Perinatal Region includes the counties of Monterey, San Benito, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and San Luis Obispo. The region extends along the Central Coast for approximately 300 miles, it includes urban, suburban and rural areas, and is socio-economically and ethnically diverse.
