CenteringPregnancy® - A new approach to prenatal care
Swedish offers a unique approach to prenatal care through CenteringPregnancy program. CenteringPregnancy brings expecting mothers and dads/partners with low-risk pregnancies together for group sessions on all aspects of prenatal care. Lead by a certified nurse-midwife, soon-to-be parents find companionship with other parents with similar due dates and together, share common pregnancy joys, concerns and plans for their new babies. Studies show that group prenatal care reduces premature births, increases breast-feeding and enhances psychosocial outcomes. This can also be attributed to the combination of education, support and knowledge participants gain in a group atmosphere.
