(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - PeaceHealth Medical Group-Women’s Health will offer CenteringPregnancy® group prenatal care beginning May 13, 2011. The two-hour sessions for expectant mothers will be offered on Fridays. The first group sessions will be facilitated by Ketchikan General Hospital Certified Nurse-Midwife Marta Poore, RN. Future group sessions will also be facilitated by Ketchikan General Hospital Certified Nurse-Midwife Katrina Lieben, RN.

The program will provide both private and group time to explore topics chosen by group members.

“It’s a great way for expectant mothers to share stories and learn from each other while learning new tools and healthier choices for themselves and their babies,” said Poore.

“This is an expansion of the CenteringPregnancy program we offered through the PeaceHealth Medical Group-Prince of Wales clinic in Craig over the winter,” said Lieben. “Women loved the way the classes were organized, so we’re excited to expand the program to Ketchikan,” she said.

Monthly sessions will meet on Fridays from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. starting May 13 at the KGH Education room on the second floor of the Plaza Mall. Call Women’s Health at 228-7688 for additional details and registration.
