CenteringPregnancy® Empowers and Provides Support Throughout Pregnancy

CenteringPregnancy is a unique care model that enables midwives to provide women with pregnancy and birth-related information in a group setting. As a result, expectant mothers learn together and support each other throughout their pregnancies.

We firmly believe that CenteringPregnancy gives women a sense of empowerment and participation in their care, as well as access to community support that is not readily available when working one-on-one with a healthcare provider.

The CenteringPregnancy program at University Hospitals offers pregnant women health assessments, health promotion, education and prenatal care, all in a supportive, group environment.

CenteringPregnancy Offers Proven, Positive Results

Studies support that the centering model improves outcomes for both the mother and her baby. Participants experience a decrease in preterm birth rates, low birth weight and postpartum depression. They also enjoy more successful breastfeeding efforts and increased knowledge, satisfaction and compliance with care.
