Short Documentary Released: Dr. Amy Crockett & CenteringPregnancy

See how a simple gathering of women can lead to radically improved health for women and babies

Dr. Amy Crockett initiated CenteringPregnancy in her practice in 2009, and scaled the model across South Carolina in 2013. CenteringPregnancy, developed by the Centering Healthcare Institute, is patient-centered care that removes the doctor-patient hierarchy. It moves prenatal patients from the exam room into a conversation and support circle with other expecting mothers. Amy’s research on Centering has shown an approximate 50% reduction in preterm births and an almost complete elimination of the racial disparity. Watch the video below to learn more.
