Our classes empower you to be your personal best—before conception, during pregnancy, and after your baby arrives.
We offer a full range of services to help you achieve optimal health prior to your pregnancy, like nutrition consultations, smoking cessation, and Weigh of Life, a weight management program. We can also help you manage a chronic condition before and during pregnancy in partnership with your doctor. The health awareness center provides any vaccinations you may need along the way.
As your pregnancy progresses, we offer prenatal classes to prepare you for childbirth, breastfeeding and infant care.
When you’re eating for two, you may have questions about your nutrient intake. Our dietitians can help you sift through the latest nutritional information while providing expert, evidence-based advice. They’ll help you create easy-to-follow eating goals tailored to your unique needs.
CHRONIC CONDITION SELF-MANAGEMENT
Our experts can help with self-management strategies if you have a chronic condition. Learn how to personalize your diet, safely increase physical activity, stay sharp, handle emotional ups and downs, manage stress and create weekly action plans.
Work one-on-one with a registered nurse health coach to control your blood pressure better. During CentraState’s hypertension management program, participants receive support and learn management skills like home monitoring, lifestyle changes, and physician communication.
Manage a Pregnancy-Related Condition
Once you become pregnant, you may experience conditions due to your pregnancy, like gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. We can work with you and your doctor throughout your pregnancy to closely monitor your health and develop a management plan. This plan is based on your needs and desires.
GESTATIONAL DIABETES PROGRAM
If you develop gestational diabetes, the diabetes educators at CentraState’s Novo Nordisk Diabetes Center can help ensure you have a smooth pregnancy. After a diagnosis from your doctor, you may have a lot of questions. Our goal is to keep you and your baby safe by providing the additional care you may need to enjoy this special time. Your educator will provide you with an individualized meal plan and teach you how and when to test your blood sugar during a two-hour appointment. We encourage you to take advantage of a free follow-up appointment after your baby’s delivery to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The Tdap vaccine is recommended for pregnant women, family members between ages 11 and 64, and caregivers of infants up to 12 months. This vaccine protects against whooping cough (also known as pertussis), an acute infectious disease that is highly contagious and remains endemic in the United States. We recommend getting the Tdap vaccine during weeks 27 to 36 of your pregnancy. Receiving the vaccine before birth is the best way for babies to build up antibodies and protection during their first year of life.
SEASONAL FLU SHOTS
Protect yourself and your baby by getting a flu shot before flu season, typically November through March, with peaks in January and February. Getting the flu vaccine will pass the immunity on to your baby while still in the womb. We offer flu shots to those ages 4 and older and encourage family members who will be interacting with your newborn to get a flu shot as well.
