  • Problem Being Addressed • Barriers to early access to prenatal care for low-income women ▫ African-American women  14 county predominantly rural district, many counties no obstetrician  Loss of three high-volume OB/GYN Medicaid providers in Dougherty, 2008  Dougherty County: 64% African-American  Dougherty County accounts for a third of the district’s population  Presumptive eligibility for pregnancy Medicaid not accepted by most obstetricians in Dougherty County ▫ Hispanic women  The District’s southernmost counties are agricultural hubs  Colquitt County’s Hispanic population estimated at 14% - probably significantly under-estimated due to a large number of undocumented Hispanic farm workers  Transportation issues  June, 2010 – prenatal care for undocumented low-income Hispanic no longer financed by the Babies Born Healthy (BBH) Program
  • What Is Centering? • National model of group prenatal care • Groups of 6-8 women whose due dates are in the same month • Nine two-hour sessions • Individual assessments • Facilitated discussions • Sessions are fun and interactive • Time for socializing and refreshments • Sessions are held at the same intervals as traditional prenatal care • Monthly until 28 weeks gestation • Every two weeks until 36 weeks gestation
  • What Is Centering? • Support people involved in sessions • Social Worker co-facilitates sessions • More experience with depression, domestic violence and other social issues • More likely to pick up on non-verbal cues related to some of these issues • Patients participate in their prenatal care • Take their own blood pressure • Weigh themselves • Plot and monitor their weight • Wheel out their gestational age

  • CenteringPregnancy®: Expanding Services Through the Use of Telemedicine * Better coordination of services * Easier access to subspecialists: • Maternal –Fetal Medicine • Cardiologist • Mental and Behavioral Health • Dermatologist
  • Access to telemedicine allows ultrasounds and Maternal Fetal Medicine consults to be done on-site
