The vision for the Certified Nurse Midwives at Mayo Clinic is to provide the best midwifery care in the world by modeling evidence based midwifery in a team-based approach to care. Midwives at Mayo Clinic believe that every patient deserves a midwife as part of their care and strive to support their patients in a holistic, whole person way while working with the first class medical care that is available in the Mayo enterprise. Mayo Clinic midwives provide antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum care to women delivering at Mayo Clinic’s flagship location in Rochester, Minnesota and support the midwifery teams at satellite locations within the Mayo Clinic Health System. Midwives provide prenatal care through an innovative OB nest model that combines telehealth, at home medical devices, hands-on provider care and connected care visits with an OB nurse to reduce on-site visits and expand access to prenatal services based on patient preference. As a unit, obstetrics team members assist in the delivery of more than 2,400 babies each year.
