A TriHealth perinatal care coordinator will help you through your pregnancy by providing you with educational materials and helping you schedule classes or fill out the hospital’s paperwork. If additional services are necessary, she will help you get the assistance you need.

- Centering Pregnancy - Centering brings pregnant women together for group support, education and discussions about pregnancy. The discussions are focused on pregnancy, birth, nutrition, breastfeeding, child care, safety and new mothering issues. This program is especially beneficial to teens. These focused gatherings, combined with one-on-one time with the provider, empower all women to better understand their physical and emotional journeys through pregnancy and motherhood.
