Coming to Saginaw - Fall 2019
Expanding your family is a tremendously exciting time in life, but it can be an emotionally draining transition for some families. Without a doubt, parenting is one the most rewarding, yet challenging jobs – but you aren’t alone.
Introducing our new
CenteringParenting® program to the Great Lakes Bay Region. This program replaces traditional childcare and brings 6-8 moms, partners, support people and their infants (age 0 – 2 years) together in community with their health care providers and other parents of same-age infants, who are experiencing similar milestones at the same time.
Centering®Parenting fosters a safe and supportive environment to ask questions and creates lifelong bonds between families. Each visit begins with individual well-child health assessments, immunizations, and developmental screenings that follow nationally recognized guidelines.
Furthermore, there is no extra cost to participate, as it is billed through your insurance the same way traditional well-child visits would be.
Centering®Parenting not only recognizes the importance of the baby’s health but also the mom’s. In group, moms monitor their own health goals and address fundamental topics including stress management, nutrition and weight, and family planning.
After completing CenteringParenting®, parents are more informed, confident, and empowered to make healthier choices for themselves, their babies, and their families.
We also want to help you get connected with free health and wellness resources in the community, which are there for financial and educational guidance, and family support.
