Trauma Healing Program

East Lake Clinic

We know trauma affects our health and the health of our community. Hennepin Healthcare is transforming East Lake Clinic into a place for healing for staff and patients.

We want to care for you with compassion, equity, cultural openness, trust, healing, and safety.

East Lake Clinic team members are here to create a healing environment and to support you and your family during and after your pregnancy.

For a healthy pregnancy, you can receive prenatal care via Centering group visits, one on one visits with family medicine providers, or via visits with a midwife. CenteringPregnancy® is prenatal care in a group format with 8-12 other pregnant patients over 10 weeks.

See our East Lake OB team handout with pictures and bios below, which is also available at our front desk for a full list of all who take part in your healthy prenatal care journey.
