Certified Nurse-Midwives

We are proud to offer Nurse-Midwife Service at HCMC. Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) are advanced practice nurses with specialized training and experience in midwifery. Our CNMs care for women throughout their life, including during pregnancy, labor and birth.

CNMs believe in keeping labor as natural as possible, but are skilled in using interventions when needed to keep mothers and babies safe and healthy. Our Nurse-Midwife Unit is located within the Birth Center, giving you access to a full range of services if needed, including anesthesiologists, OB physicians, pediatric services, Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit and lactation services.

A First for Minnesota

HCMC's Nurse-Midwife Service was the first of its kind in Minnesota, and has been welcoming new babies since 1971. Today, our Certified Nurse-Midwives see patients in locations throughout the metro area and deliver babies in their own unit within the Birth Center.

We believe that pregnancy is a special time in the life of a family, and that birth can be an empowering, natural experience. We believe all expectant mothers have the right to safe, satisfying health care that meets their spiritual and cultural beliefs, values and traditions.

What is a Nurse-Midwife?

Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) are advanced practice nurses with specialized training and expertise in midwifery.

CNMs provide prenatal care, labor and delivery and postpartum care, yearly gynecological exams, birth control and family planning, preconception care, and counseling in health care management and disease prevention. They can prescribe medication, perform medical procedures and provide other interventions when medically necessary.

In our practice

The midwives that make up the Nurse-Midwife Service at Hennepin County Medical Center see patients in traditional clinic settings and deliver babies at Hennepin County Medical Center. The Birth Center gives patients access to a full range of services, if needed, including anesthesiologists, OB physicians, pediatric services, Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit, and lactation services.

Meet the Midwives

We invite you to attend one of our "Meet and Greets" to learn more about our Nurse-Midwife Service and to meet our certified nurse-midwives.

We will have a short introduction about each CNM, and there will be time to mingle and ask questions. Then we’ll provide tours of the Birth Center for mothers and families who are interested. Light refreshments will be served. No registration is required. Best of all, it’s FREE!
