Our CenteringPregnancy program is a multifaceted model of group care that integrates the three major components of care: health assessment, education, and support, into a unified program within a group setting. Eight to twelve women with similar gestational ages meet together, learning care skills, participating in a facilitated discussion, and developing a support network with other group members. Each Centering group meets for a total of 10 sessions throughout pregnancy and early postpartum. The practitioner, within the group space, completes standard physical health assessments.
From Dr. Sharai Amaya:
We have now hosted 6 Centering groups and are enrolling monthly. The patients are loving it! 100% have rated their satisfaction with the Centering experience as “highly satisfied.” We want to encourage every expecting mother to join in!
