Centering Pregnancy

Centering Pregnancy: A Prenatal Group Visit Model

BMC is proud to offer Centering Pregnancy, a model of group prenatal care, delivered in 10, 2- hour group medical visits following the usual interval of prenatal care throughout the pregnancy. Centering Pregnancy group visits offer a single bundled, comprehensive health visit including assessment, collaborative learning and social support. Participants spend significantly more time with their provider and create social networks with other pregnant moms due in the same month.

The model uses principles of adult learning and empowerment embodied in group activities of knowledge sharing and self-management.  Group models provide a much longer visit and unique opportunities to address social determinants of health and health disparities through: shared mutual decision making, enhanced two way communication, shared clinical responsibility, understanding of concerns, shared experiences and more time to address complex healthcare needs. 

If you’re interested in enrolling in a Centering Pregnancy group, call 617.414.2000.
