Centering Healthcare Institute (CHI) improves parenting behaviors and child outcomes through its group-based approach to prenatal and pediatric care.

CHI’s flagship program, CenteringPregnancy®, brings together 8-12 mothers with similar due dates, their partners, and a healthcare team for a series of 10 prenatal visits.

CHI’s second program, CenteringParenting®, continues for nine well-child visits over the first two years of a child’s life. Each two-hour Centering visit combines a one-on-one health assessment for each patient with the provider (including immunizations and developmental screenings) as well as interactive learning and community-building to help support positive parent behaviors and drive better child outcomes.

After birth, early screening allows for detection of both developmental delays and health issues. One in six children aged three through 17 years have one or more developmental disabilities, and yet only 30.4% of children 9-35 months of age receive a developmental screening. Parents play a critically important role in ensuring their children are on track, but almost half (48%) of all parents don’t feel they are getting the support they need when they feel stressed.

Low-income communities and communities of color, in particular, are less likely to have access to the tools that support a child’s healthy development and thus are disproportionately burdened by poor outcomes early in life.

“Quote determines health outcomes for many New Jersey mothers and babies. Everyone — regardless of skin color — should be given an equal chance at a healthy, productive life. The New Jersey Department of Health is grateful for this public-private partnership to address these disparities in maternal and child health.”

Dr. Shereef Elnahal, former New Jersey Health Commissioner
