CenteringPregnancy Reunion

By December 31, 2015July 17th, 2018Health Care News

Grace Health had its first CenteringPregnancy Reunion on December 30, 2015. This is the first group to use CenteringPregnancy at Grace Health for their prenatal care.  During their pregnancy, women with similar due dates and their spouse/support person meet as a group with their health care provider to share questions, advice and experiences.  Each group visit lasts about 2 hours and includes an individual health check-up and time for discussion with the group.  When asked what they thought about Centering, Jessica Brown stated “Centering was very helpful and resourceful.  I would definitely recommend it to others.”  Both Jessica and Katie Setler agreed that “it was good to be with other women who were experiencing the same things they were.”  Breasha Jackson stated “Centering was helpful and I looked forward to it every week”.  Ashley Sidebottom commented “it was a good experience and good information.” The CenteringPregnancy Reunion gave staff the opportunity to reconnect with the women after the birth of their babies, share information, and continue to build relationships. Not only did women get to spend extra time with their health care provider, share experiences, and ask questions, but they also developed friendships that may last a lifetime.
