Centering Pregnancy Program
As a participant in the Affinia Centering Pregnancy Program, you have the opportunity to receive your prenatal care in a group setting that celebrates and empowers you to be your healthiest, and to have a healthy and fulfilling experience of pregnancy to best care for and nurture your growing baby. The program is a model of prenatal care that provides prenatal care to women in groups – in a supportive environment.
There are three essential components to this approach:
These are some of the topics we cover:
If you choose to participate in the program, you will have your initial prenatal exam in private with your health care provider. You are then invited to join a group of 8 to 12 other pregnant women to meet regularly for 10 visits at Affinia South located at 3930 S. Broadway. Whether or not this is your first child, pregnancy is a time of transition and a lot of changes. We would like to help you have a positive, healing and healthy experience of nurturing and caring for yourself and your baby. Please join us!
