Deb Clyburn, one of our Nurse Practitioners, remembers a case in which a mother (who had participated in a Centering group) had to be hospitalized for a week when her baby was barely a month old. She called a friend that she had made in her Centering group, and that friend cared for her baby for several days during her hospitalization. For Deb, this represents the power of the Centering groups, where a person can make such strong friendships.
Sarah Covington, the Program’s Coordinator, says, “For me, it’s a pleasure to be with these women during the journey through their pregnancy. It’s a very special moment in a woman’s life, and we are here for them with support, information, medical care, and a safe place for them to talk about what’s going on in their lives. I really enjoy getting to know these families and being with them during this life-changing period, and we do our best to take really good care of them. I love my job!”
