    Einstein Medical Center has launched a program designed to offer women prenatal care in a group setting.

    With the support of a Pennsylvania Department of Health grant, Einstein has launched the Centering Pregnancy prenatal care program, which offers health care assessments, education and support.

    During the program, from 8 to 12 women in each group participate in 10 sessions over a seven-month period at Enon Baptist Tabernacle Church, 2800 West Cheltenham Avenue. During the two-hour sessions, participants take their own blood pressure and check their weight. Participating women also receive one-on-one time with Colleen Lynch, the certified nurse-midwife who runs Einstein’s Centering program. Two cohorts of women are currently participating in Einstein’s program.

    “The nice thing is they take some ownership of their healthcare. They keep track of their pregnancy progress. They see how resourceful they can be for other women. They are all going through the same thing at the same time,” says Lynch.
