Whether it is someone’s first or fourth child, pregnancy is a journey with each and every time. Questions are aplenty, and often pregnant moms only get a short time to spend with their providers each visit. They may forget their questions, be embarrassed to address issues, or just be overwhelmed and fail to ask all they had hoped to. In addition, the prenatal world is full of books, websites, unsolicited advice, and misinformation that can lead our patients down the wrong path at times. In order to provide holistic and fulfilling prenatal care as well as a built-in support system, centering group prenatal visits have been slowly introduced into healthcare. In an effort to share their success and grow support, this article will describe their benefits.
