Sunday, April 14, 2019; Denison Avenue United Church of Christ, 9900 Denison Avenue: (L-R) Neighborhood Family Practice Medical Assistant Aida Caraballo and Neighborhood Family Practice Doula Arielle Tiggs visit with members of the Denison Avenue United Church of Christ congregation after services on Palm Sunday. Neighborhood Family Practice staff visit the church quarterly to provide information about Neighborhood Family Practice’s Pregnancy Care and the Centering Pregnancy Program. The program offers support groups for pregnant women and mothers, including nurse-midwifery services and doulas (a parenting mentor). The Centering support groups bring together pregnant women with similar due dates to share their experience and offer each other support.
