NHCH awarded March of Dimes grant

The March of Dimes Hawaii Chapter has awarded a grant to the Waimea Women’s Center at North Hawaii Community Hospital. This grant will enhance the CenteringPregnancy group model of prenatal care. CenteringPregnancy empowers women to make healthy life choices and has been found to increase babies birth weights and gestational age, which improves pregnancy outcomes. This grant is one of many that the March of Dimes awards in pursuit of its mission to prevent birth defects and infant mortality.
