The Standards for maternal and neonatal care are a set of user-friendly leaflets that present WHO key recommendations on the delivery of maternal and neonatal care in health facilities, starting from the first level of care.

The Standards for maternal and neonatal care are part of the WHO Integrated Management of Pregnancy and Childbirth Care (IMPAC) Package, which provides guidance for countries to improve the health and survival of women and their newborn babies during pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period.
