No! There is no additional cost. GPC is included in your prenatal care.
ABOUT GROUP PRENATAL CARE (GPC)
As an alternative to traditional prenatal care, this seven-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 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!
Each group meets together for approximately 1 - 1 1/2 hours for seven sessions throughout pregnancy. At every meeting, there is one-on-one time to meet with the provider for an individual assessment, so no need to schedule prenatal appointments outside of GPC (unless otherwise directed). This individual time with the provider allows for any concerns to be addressed in private before attending the group session.
We will also schedule an ultrasound for you at around 20 weeks!
