Established in 1985, the Perinatal Foundation funds priorities to advance excellence in perinatal health care. We’re proud to support the Wisconsin Association for Perinatal Care, and share the desire to improve the health of moms and birthing people, infants, and families in Wisconsin. We’re committed to supporting our dedicated perinatal professionals throughout their career.
The Myrtle Bahm Leonard Scholarship offsets the high cost of childcare for the next generation of perinatal care providers.
The Perinatal Foundation is proud to support programs, events, and speakers that help further our mission to improve outcomes for birthing people and families.
Thomas A. Leonard was the driving force behind the formation of the Perinatal Foundation and was a highly respected obstetrician and professor at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. In addition to bringing awareness to innovative topics in perinatal healthcare, this lecture helps realize the Perinatal Foundation’s original mission of bringing education to more professionals and providers.
