How is My Privacy Protected?
We are required to protect your privacy and we take that responsibility seriously. No pelvic exams are done during Centering sessions. The area where belly checks are completed is situated to enhance the feeling of privacy and safety. If you require an exam or have issues that require additional privacy, you will be seen in an exam room outside the Centering appointment.
In addition, at the first group session, each person signs a confidentiality agreement and it is emphasized that participants’ particular concerns should not be discussed outside the group setting. Ground rules agreed upon are posted in the group space. The decision to share information with the group is made by each participant; no one ever is pressured to disclose personal concerns.
