No! There is no additional cost. GPC is included in your prenatal care.
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!
Each group meets together for approximately 1 - 1 1/2 hours for eight 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.
ENROLL NOW by contacting 563.355.1853. Patients must be enrolled in the Group Prenatal Care course to participate in sessions.
We will also schedule an ultrasound for you at around 20 weeks!
