What is CenteringPregnancy?
CenteringPregnancy is prenatal care that includes an individual health check-up with additional time and attention in a group setting. You’ll meet with your healthcare provider and other women who are due near the same time for 10 sessions during your pregnancy.

CenteringPregnancy is a way for you to share learning and experience with other pregnant women and to be involved in your own care.

You will:

  • Learn more about pregnancy
  • Be better prepared for birth
  • Be better prepared to care for your baby
  • Participate more in your healthcare
  • Have more time with your provider

Community:
Expectant mothers meet other pregnant women with due dates close to their and their healthcare team. Often partners and support people join the groups as well. It’s a bond of friendship that can last a lifetime.

Time:
Each group visit lasts about 2 hours. Scheduling in advance makes planning for work and childcare easier. Plus, groups start and end on time so there is no waiting for appointments.
