PROGRAMS FOR EXPECTANT MOTHERS
Genesys CenteringPregnancy® Program
CenteringPregnancy is an exciting way for women and their families to receive prenatal care. You will spend time with your health care provider and with other pregnant women in a group setting, providing you the opportunity to learn more about pregnancy, preparing for the birth of your child and parenting.
In each of the ten sessions, you will have private time with your health care provider. Then you’ll meet with other women whose due dates are close to yours to talk about your pregnancy, learn together about common concerns and share your health experiences with others in a supportive, nurturing environment. You’ll receive information and tools to help you make healthier choices for you, your baby and your family.
For more information about CenteringPregnancy, talk with your physician or call the Genesys Downtown Flint OB/GYN Clinic at (810) 232-3522.
