CenteringPregnancy® is Here!
We are pleased to announce that Reply is now offering CenteringPregnancy. New classes forming about every six weeks! Centering is an innovative model of prenatal care that features group discussion and interactive activities. Each session includes individual prenatal check-ups and group discussions covering a broad range of topics such as nutrition, common discomforts, stress management, labor and delivery, breastfeeding, and infant care. This group approach allows for patients to learn from others’ questions and form lasting friendships along the way!
Reply Ob/Gyn & Fertility is the only clinic in the Triangle Region that offers Centering with physician participation. The Reply Centering team includes: Dr. Rachel Urrutia, Dr. Amina White, nurse midwife Tally Krienke, nurse midwife Jennifer Kowal, RN and Director of Patient Education, Lori Hartley, and RN and nursing team member Denelle Kolkmann.
Facts about Centering:
• Centering patients spend 10x more time with their provider than women in traditional care.
• Studies show that Centering moms have healthier babies, and that Centering nearly eliminates racial disparities in preterm birth rates.
• Centering moms are better prepared for labor, delivery, and caring for their infant.
• Practices report fewer after-hours calls and emergency visits from Centering patients because these patients better understand what is normal during pregnancy and what is cause for concern.
Reply will start a new Centering group each month. Please contact Tally Krienke or Jennifer Kowal at 919-230-2100 to learn more about Centering at Reply or to register for the next class!
