Centering Pregnancy is prenatal care that combines the physical assessment with time for discussion and learning about pregnancy, birth and babies. Most importantly, Centering is patient centered & FUN!
Why is Centering Pregnancy so special?
*You will meet with other women with due dates similar to yours.
*You will know when all your appointments are for a few months in advance.
*The 90 minute session starts and ends on time.
*You will get to know your practitioner, nurse, or doctor really well.
*Group starts when you are 14-18 weeks pregnant and continues through early postpartum. You will have your initial physical exam and intake before you join the group.
*During the first four months, the group will meet once a month. Then the sessions are every other week as pregnancy progresses.
*The time you come will depend which group you are in. A staff member will tell you when your group will meet.
*Groups are for any woman who wants to learn more about her pregnancy and wants to meet other women who are pregnant.
*Groups are led by health care practitioners who work in this setting.
*Groups fill up quickly so you should let our staff know as soon as possible when you are ready to join a group.
