A report by researchers at Instituto Nacional de Salud Publica finds improved health outcomes for mothers and infants in Mexico who participated in CenteringPregnancy group antenatal care. CenteringPregnancy groups eight to ten women together by due date to help expand their time with health providers, build a support network, and produce better health outcomes. The model was previously found to improve health outcomes in diverse and low-income communities in the U.S. The MacArthur-supported report shows the model can be successfully adapted to the contexts of diverse countries. Researchers also discuss challenges, including the need to adapt the process to local government guidelines and find appropriate health care providers.
