Mothers like Sandra and Johanna have had the opportunity to participate in both our CenteringPregnancy® and CenteringParenting® programs and have had wonderful experiences. CenteringPregnancy is a group-care model that provides prenatal care to mothers and CenteringParenting is a group-care model that provides pediatric care and parenting education throughout a child’s first two years of life.
Although Johanna and Sandra were not first-time mothers, they still had many questions surrounding their pregnancies. CenteringPregnancy’s safe and comfortable community environment encouraged Sandra, Johanna, and other pregnant mothers to ask questions and learn from each other.
“[Although] I am a shy person, I love to hear others’ opinions because I felt like there was so much to learn,” Johanna shares.
Sandra and Johanna have been able to continue sharing the journey of their babies growing up with the same cohort of mothers through CenteringParenting, where they feel support from their cohort and Ravenswood clinic staff.
Both Johanna and Sandra recommend CenteringPregnancy and CenteringParenting because of the continued care. “I benefited from being in both programs because it allowed me to receive continued care!” Sandra excitedly shares.
