  2. Developmentally appropriate care and services are provided across the lifespan.
  3. Families are empowered to make educated choices about infant health and well-being.
  4. Communities and providers support physical, social, and emotional health.
  5. Professionals have the knowledge and skills to address the needs of maternal and child health populations.
  6. Services are comprehensive and coordinated across systems and providers.
  7. Information is available to support informed health decisions and choices.
