Abstract: CenteringPregnancy®, a group prenatal care programme which has been successfully established in several countries, has demonstrated positive outcomes such as fewer cases of induced labour and less need for pain medication during childbirth (Rijnders et al., 2019). This care model combines medical examinations and health promotion, while also connecting pregnant women and their families (Schindler Rising & Houde Quimby, 2017). So-called “centering groups” support women’s self-management in coping with everyday issues and help them prepare for motherhood. In the German region of Switzerland, the ZHAW Institute of Midwifery has initiated “zäme schwanger” (Pregnant Together), a programme providing practical midwifery training for student midwives at ZHAW, who offer prenatal care followed by group meetings, in which they are supervised by experienced midwifery lecturers.
