CenteringPregnancy® group prenatal care is one of the methods of prenatal care offered at UNC OB-GYN, specifically through the UNC Midwives practice. We started this program in 2015, and we’ve seen great growth and success as more women choose this way to receive their prenatal care.
At UNC OB/GYN & Midwifery, we love happy moms and healthy babies! The CenteringPregnancy® model has proven to provide both, with 100% of our patients surveyed reporting satisfaction with their care and only 3% born before 37 weeks of gestation.
In the CenteringPregnancy® model, pregnant women are grouped by due date and receive care together throughout their pregnancies. Patients have individual assessments such as weight, blood pressure and routine labs as they would at a one-on-one prenatal visit.
