Strong Start is a federal grant project that delivers enhancing prenatal group care to women on or eligible for Medicaid who are at-risk for preterm birth. This program offers CenteringPregnancy® prenatal care in groups.
WHAT IS CENTERING PREGNANCY?
Centering is a unique way to receive care while pregnant because it combines health assessment, education, and social support in each visit. Participants get to meet other moms-to-be and get to share their pregnancy experience with new "mom friends." Groups of about 10 women with similar due dates meet for up to 10 sessions for about 2 hours each. Each session includes a Mom and Baby health check up with the physician, discussion and learning, time to share with other women, and healthy snacks. All sessions are pre-scheduled for convenience, and there is no waiting because groups start and end on time! If you want to enhance your pregnancy experience and have fun at your prenatal visits, CenteringPregnancy® could be the perfect fit for you!
