Event Details

Event Description

For over 100 years, prenatal care has been provided in an exam room, behind closed doors. Group prenatal care is an innovative approach to providing care that brings prenatal care out of the exam room into a group setting. This model, developed by a Yale midwife, has been disseminated increasingly widely across the U.S, and has been demonstrated to dramatically improve critical perinatal outcomes and the experience of care, particularly for low-income and minority women. We will explore how midwifery models of care, including out-of-hospital birth and the philosophy of “physiologic birth” are transforming maternity care in the U.S.


The language of the event will be English.
