EXPERIENCE THE GROUP

We are proud to be one of the few in the area to offer Group Prenatal Care! Group Prenatal Care lets expectant mothers know they're not alone. As an alternative to traditional prenatal care, this eight session experience throughout pregnancy allows women with similar due dates to meet and discuss common issues, concerns, and care. You will experience a rotation of midwives and doctors throughout the group and are welcome to bring one support person along for each session. The support person can be a partner, mom, friend, or sibling!

Prenatal Care Sessions

Each group meets together for an hour and a half. We start on time and end on time, no waiting! At every session there is an opportunity to speak privately with the provider for an individual assessment so you can voice any concerns or questions. Group Prenatal Care provides an atmosphere for learning and sharing. During this time, women are empowered to choose health-promoting behaviors.

We will also schedule an ultrasound for you around 20 weeks!

The Group Difference

We believe in collaboration at The Group and during your pregnancy journey, you have the choice of rotating providers for each pre-natal appointment to get to know each one. There will always be a designated Obstetrician and CNM on-call to deliver your baby.

We specialize in pre pregnancy planning, normal and high risk pregnancies, postpartum care and so much more!
