CenteringPregnancy® is a group model of health care that includes a regular, individual health check-up, with additional time for learning and sharing in a group setting. It allows pregnant women on the same pregnancy timeline to gather and experience their pregnancy together.
Each group gathering lasts about 2 hours, with a Covenant Prenatal & Women’s Health Clinic provider guiding the session. Partners and support people are welcome to accompany participants to each session.
There are several benefits to participating in a CenteringPregnancy group. Women that complete the sessions are less likely to have a preterm baby, they feel more confident to make healthy decisions for themselves and their family, and have higher breastfeeding rates – which is healthier for both mom and baby.
