Improving Pregnancy Outcomes by Implementing Centering Pregnancy into Prenatal Care
MetadataShow full item record
This evidence-based research project discusses the benefits of group prenatal education and its outcome on the rates of birth rates and preterm births. With the limited amount of time given in clinical practice, there becomes an inability to educate pregnant patients with enough prenatal education. There is substantial evidence that reveals a lack of prenatal education is linked to an increase risk of preterm birth and low birth rates. This project recommends that Centering Pregnancy, which is a group prenatal education program, decreases those risks as compared to standard prenatal education. The tools used in the Centering Pregnancy prenatal education program not only benefits the mother by educating her with important knowledge but decreases the risks of premature birth and low birth rates in their unborn child.
