CenteringPregnancy class

Group prenatal care bringing women due at the same time out of exam rooms and into a comfortable group setting

CenteringPregnancy® brings eight to ten expecting moms, partners and support people who have similar due dates together to meet with trusted healthcare providers and other parents who are experiencing similar things at the same time. This model of prenatal care is facilitated by a certified nurse midwife (CNM) at UM BWMG Women's Health and an assistant. CenteringPregnancy® fosters a safe and supportive environment to ask questions and creates lifelong bonds between families.

Most of the prenatal care will be delivered in the group setting with each of these visits being 90 minutes long. Moms engage in their care by taking their own weight and blood pressure and recording their own health data followed by private time with their provider for belly check. Once individual health assessments are complete, the provider and support staff “circle-up” with moms and support people. They facilitate open discussion and interactive activities about timely health topics and issues that are important to the group.
