Group Prenatal Care

Modeled after the Centering Pregnancy Program, our Group Prenatal Care provides pregnant individuals with similar due dates new opportunities to engage in their care and build connections with other expectant parents. Group Prenatal Care is your prenatal care and your pregnancy, birth, and new parent education all in one.

How Group Prenatal Care Works

Your care begins as individual appointments in the first trimester and shifts to group educational sessions in the second trimester. The group sessions are 2-hour visits in which expectant individuals share the joys, challenges, and concerns of pregnancy and early parenting, while still receiving private consultation with their care providers.

Each group session consists of about 6-8 pregnant individuals. Sessions also include appointment reminders, healthy snacks, fun learning activities, educational and community resources, on-site yoga, mind-body connection and more!
