Group Care Global‘s mission is to promote group health care for pregnant and parenting people, infants, partners, and their families to improve health and well-being.

To support this mission, Group Care Global collaborates with international partners to integrate Centering-Based Group Care into health systems.

Community Building

A Blueprint for the Newborn Neighbourhood

One of the three core components of Group Care is Community Building, both among participants in the group itself, as well as with the larger community where they live, work, and raise their families. The Blueprint is a community approach that connects (future) parents with neighborhood resources. Because it takes a neighbourhood to raise a child!
