In 2014, CCI Health & Wellness Services established a comprehensive prenatal practice in Prince George's County, just as the county's' prenatal services were closing their doors. Our prenatal program provides affordable, comprehensive, quality prenatal care services that are tailored to the diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds of women in the county. In 2015, CCI adopted CenteringPregnancy® as its standard of care. CenteringPregnancy® group care follows the recommended schedule of ten prenatal visits, but each visit is two hours long-giving patients ten times as much time with their provider team. Patients engage in their care by taking their own weight and blood pressure, recording their own health data, and have private time with their provider for belly check. In addition to fun group activities and interactive discussions, women in Centering are introduced to our dental, pediatric, and behavioral health providers. At CCI Health & Wellness Services, patients and staff come together for a healthy and happy pregnancy.
With a goal of $10,000 you will be able to provide complete prenatal care for 1 CenteringPregnancy® cohort - that's 8 uninsured women that will receive comprehensive care because of you! These women will not only receive 12 prenatal visits - but will also receive newborn essentials including diapers, wipes, bottles, books, carriers, and more.
CCI Health & Wellness Services opened its doors in 1969 when a cadre of volunteer health professionals working with the City of Rockville's Roving Youth Leader Program opened a safety-net clinic to provide health care to at-risk youth. Over the past 49 years, CCI has evolved from a volunteer-driven safety net clinic to a vibrant, integrated, multidisciplinary organization focused on improving the overall health and wellness of its community. As a Federally Qualified Health Center, CCI provides primary care, dental care, behavioral health, prenatal care, family planning services, refugee health services, HIV/Infectious disease services, and WIC services to over 62,000 individuals across Montgomery and Prince George's County.
In the Spring of 2017, Maria, 40 was 10 weeks along when she established prenatal care with CCI Health & Wellness Services. Maria had previously suffered two miscarriages and was anxious about the pregnancy. A few short weeks later, Maria joined a CenteringPregnancy® cohort. At the first session, she brought her parents, who traveled from home in Honduras to be with their daughter during the early stages of her pregnancy. As Maria and the other women engaged in interactive learning, facilitated discussion, and community building, her parents witnessed the benefits of CenteringPregnancy® first hand. During the session, Maria's father expressed to the group how fortunate they were to have CenteringPregnancy®, a place where women can gather together to share their experiences and be there for each other. He was proud of the women for taking this step in their pregnancy. Maria attended all sessions until she was 39 weeks along and had a C-Section. She gave birth to a boy named Joshua who weighed 8 lbs 5 oz.
