Our History

Centering started in the 1990’s as one healthcare provider’s idea to provide more effective prenatal care to her patients. Instead of repeating the same information over and over to women one at a time, our founder, Sharon Rising, brought pregnant women together for their prenatal visits. Colleagues who learned about her groups started doing it too, and through word of mouth the demand grew for Centering facilitation trainings across the country.
