LEBANON, N.H. (AP) — The obstetrics department at New Hampshire's Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is getting a $10,000 grant to implement a model designed to decrease the rate of premature deliveries.

The hospital has been chosen by the March of Dimes as a project site for its CenteringPregnancy model, which officials say has been shown to increase parents' satisfaction with prenatal care and readiness for labor and birth.

Under the model, women in similar stages of pregnancy meet on a regular basis for social support and educational discussion sessions.
