Grants of up to $20,000 to Wisconsin non-profits, for-profits, and government agencies that work to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. These grants are intended to support community services, education, and advocacy efforts to save babies and promote equity in birth outcomes. Funding is specifically to be used for the implementation, enhancement, or expansion of the CenteringPregnancy® model of group prenatal care for Wisconsin’s pregnant women.

The objectives of this grant program are to:
* Increase the number of women participating in the CenteringPregnancy® prenatal care program.
* Increase the number of Wisconsin organizations trained and certified in the CenteringPregnancy® program.
* Contribute to the evidence based knowledge of the effectiveness and limitation of the CenteringPregnancy® model.

Through the CenteringPregnancy® model, women receive basic prenatal assessments, share concerns informally with other women, and discuss together content related to childbearing and parenting. Sessions are led by two skilled group leaders who also coordinate the assessment component. One leader must be a health care provider, usually a nurse midwife or nurse practitioner. The groups ideally consist of 8 to 12 women at common stages of gestation. The sessions are designed to last two hours with the first 30 minutes being used for assessment and the remaining time for education.
