Centering Pregnancy is a unique, innovative approach to prenatal care. Instead of having short, individual clinic appointments, you will meet in a small group setting with other women who are due around the same time as you. These groups are led by a midwife or physician along with a member of our nursing staff; this team will guide the discussion, but the conversations that occur in Centering depend largely on what the group wants to discuss. Groups meet for 2 hours at a time, which allows for individual assessment of the baby's growth and heartbeat, as well as plenty of time for relaxed and open communication about different concerns and questions. Centering groups often have guest speakers as well, such as breastfeeding experts, nutrition experts, labor and delivery nurses, and the like.
If you choose this fun approach to prenatal care, you will experience bonding and will develop friendships unlike anything you have known before. All of the routine testing you would normally have in individual care will occur in the Centering environment. You will still have the same prenatal lab work (blood and urine) and same ultrasound testing. Your group will start on time and end on time, and there will be no waiting to see your provider. You will have the same provider throughout your pregnancy.
If you are interested, or if you have any questions, you may speak with
our clerks or our nursing staff for more information.
