The Methodist Life Shines Bright Pregnancy Program, offered through the Methodist Dallas Golden Cross Academic Clinic and Methodist Charlton Medical Center, is working in partnership with the March of Dimes to reduce the risk of preterm birth.
Methodist’s Life Shines Bright Pregnancy Program features an innovative prenatal care program and group education for women and their partners. Our classes offer expectant mothers prenatal care and opportunities for education, support, and encouragement with other moms-to-be.
What is CenteringPregnancy®?
CenteringPregnancy is a unique style of prenatal care provided in a group setting. Its aim is to build a community that empowers women to be actively involved in their own care and better equips expectant mothers to make healthy choices throughout their pregnancy and beyond.
Expectant mothers meet for 10 sessions with a group of other pregnant women with similar due dates. Each time a group meets, women have the chance to record their pregnancy progress, address specific concerns one-on-one with their provider, and discuss pregnancy issues that are relevant to them, including:
- Stress reduction
- Signs of labor
- New baby care
- Postpartum issues
