Group Prenatal Care in Austin, TX

What is Group Prenatal Care?

Group Prenatal Care is comprised of childbirth education group sessions combined with prenatal care appointments. Patients, their midwives, and a co-facilitator attend 9 or 10 sessions for a total of 18 to 20 hours. Group education occurs alongside individual prenatal care checks for each patient. 

  • This program is designed to provide you with a traditional health check up plus additional time and attention in a group setting

  • You'll meet with your midwife and other families who are due near the same time that you are

  • Together you'll share your learning experiences, receive education for yourselves and your families, and become involved in your own care

  • Group Prenatal Care sessions will replace your individual prenatal visits with two hour long group experiences for the majority of your pregnancy

  • During the last month of your full term you'll return to individual prenatal care meetings with your midwife
