CenteringPregnancy® is an innovative group approach to prenatal care, integrating health assessment, education and emotional support.

The program provides a dynamic atmosphere for learning and sharing and is offered to all expecting mothers.

The program brings together 8 to 12 women of similar due dates to learn skills, participate in facilitated discussions and develop a support network over the course of 7 to 10 two-hour sessions. You will receive the same attentive care that you would receive during an individual prenatal appointment but with even more time to ask questions and learn about your pregnancy, birth and becoming a parent.


Sessions are led by an obstetrician or certified nurse-midwife and are held at VCU Health at the Nelson Clinic on VCU Medical Center's downtown campus.
