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:

  • Exercise
  • Nutrition
  • Stress reduction
  • Signs of labor
  • Breastfeeding
  • New baby care
  • Postpartum issues
