A better way for patient-centered prenatal care

CenteringPregnancy® is group prenatal care that brings 8-10 women with similar due dates out of the exam room and into a comforting group setting. Each group gathering lasts 90 minutes to two hours, giving each woman more time with providers and nurses within the recommended 10 prenatal visits.

Once health assessments are complete, UnityPoint Clinic providers and staff "circle up" with moms and support people for discussion and interactive activities designed to address important and timely health topics. Everything from nutrition, common discomforts, stress management, labor and delivery, breastfeeding and infant care are covered in group.

Providing care in this way allows moms and providers to get to know each other on a much deeper and meaningful level. Members of the group form lasting friendships and are connected in ways not possible through traditional care.

Centering groups that include women of different ages, races and socioeconomic backgrounds see those differences diminish in importance as they share the common experience of pregnancy, birth and family care.

Studies show CenteringPregnancy group prenatal care has resulted in significant beneficial effects on very low birth weight and fetal demise outcomes compared to traditional, individually-delivered prenatal care.
