Health eMoms will relaunch in 2023

Due to dedicated and sustained funding through the passage of HB22-1289: Cover All Coloradans during the 2022 legislative session, Health eMoms will relaunch in April 2023. This legislation provides funding to build programmatic analytic capacity, implement oversamples of previously underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, and pursue opportunities to create a more community-driven and equitable data system.  

The Health eMoms Survey is one of Colorado’s best programs for collecting maternal health data. From 2018-20, it was a critical resource in our analyses and policy approaches to Colorado’s family health landscape, providing important information on topics ranging from paid family leave to nutrition. The Children’s Campaign regularly uses data from the survey in our own reports and briefs including our annual KIDS COUNT in Colorado! report. 

In addition, there are several new Health eMoms data products that are now available as part of an Areas of Wellbeing series, which build upon the Colorado maternal and child health (MCH) framework and the 2019 MCH needs assessment. These include briefs on Access to Care, Behavioral Health, Nutrition Security, Economic Mobility, and Child and Youth Development 

The Department of Public Health and Environment is planning stakeholder engagement opportunities to inform the relaunch of the survey. Keep up with KidsFlash for all the latest as Health eMoms relaunches and new data on Colorado’s maternal health landscape becomes available in the future.
