    A History of Success – Past Connecticut Grants

    The March of Dimes Connecticut Chapter and our partner organizations are helping moms have healthier pregnancies and babies begin healthier lives. Below are some programs the Connecticut Chapter has recently funded (2008-2011).

    CenteringPregnancy ®
    CenteringPregnancy is a model of prenatal care that combines the three main components of prenatal care (assessment, education, support) in a group setting. The Centering Pregnancy model of prenatal care provides care to women in groups.  The groups provide a safe, supportive environment where women can learn from each other and build positive, motivating relationships and positive birth outcomes. 

    This program has been supported via Connecticut Chapter grants  at Community Health Center, Inc. (Middletown/Meriden); Hospital of Saint Raphael’s (New Haven); Mansfield Ob-Gyn, LLC; Fair Haven Community Health Center (New Haven); Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center (Hartford).

    This Hartford-regional planning project (in preparation for a statewide initiative) aims to develop and implement a systematic hospital- based effort to educate obstetric health care providers regarding the risks of elective deliveries at <39 weeks gestation.  This grant is implemented at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and is supported by the Northern Connecticut Neonatal-Perinatal Collaborative.
