The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American College of Nurse Midwives have established standards for prenatal care delivery that have been adopted throughout the United States. Despite the nearly universal implementation of these practice standards for prenatal care delivery, birth outcomes in the United States are among the worst in the industrialized world. There is no evidence this model of prenatal care is beneficial for mothers and babies. CenteringPregnancy is a model of prenatal care that is evidenced based and can be an offered as an alternative. Within this model patients receive their prenatal care in groups of 8-12 as opposed to the one patient one provider structure implicit in traditional prenatal care. Studies show that participants in CenteringPregnancy have a 33% risk reduction of delivery of a premature infant. They also suggest that staff and patient satisfaction with this model is high. The midwifery practice of Seton Obstetrics and Gynecology implemented a CenteringPregnancy program in 2009. Identified barriers to successful implementation of CenteringPregnancy in this practice were challenges with recruitment, scheduling, and space availability. This capstone project examines the effects of a staff education program on the CenteringPregnancy program. A pretest/posttest design for measurement of effect of education about CenteringPregnancy on the staff of Seton Obstetrics and Gynecology was used. Satisfaction surveys were also obtained to measure level of satisfaction with the program among participants in this project. Participants included the staff and providers of Seton Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as English speaking pregnant patients over the age of 18 who are enrolled in the CenteringPregnancy program. Fifteen staff members started the project and took the pretest. Thirteen completed the three sessions and took the posttest (n=13). The staff (n=13) also completed the AGREE Instrument at the completion of the third session which were scored according to the instructions supplied with the instrument. There was a statistically significant difference between the pretest and the posttest scores (p=0.001). The majority of staff strongly recommended implementation of the CenteringPregnancy program according to the guidelines presented. Staff and patient satisfaction with the program was high as was expected.
