Abstract

CenteringPregnancy is an innovative model of group prenatal care that has been implemented at more than 100 prenatal care sites since 1995.

Complete prenatal care is provided in a group setting. Prenatal assessment, education, and support occur in a facilitative environment. The model offers effective and efficient care that is sustainable and can enhance the health of women, their families, health care providers, and communities.
