8 Reasons to Choose Luther Midelfort for Your Prenatal Care and Delivery

There is a Difference!

Following are just eight of many reasons to choose Luther Midelfort for your prenatal care and delivery.

  1. Proximity of clinic and hospital care. Our clinic and hospital staff works as a team to provide seamless care across the Luther Midelfort system. While most births go as planned, patients benefit from knowing that if an emergency should happen, valuable time will be saved in going from the clinic to the hospital.
  2. Connection with Mayo Clinic. Luther Midelfort has direct communication with the specialists at Mayo Clinic. This saves patients from driving to Rochester and allows urgent pediatric conditions to be diagnosed and treated immediately. In addition, Mayo One, an emergency medical helicopter, is based at Luther Midelfort and available for mother and baby emergencies.
  3. Accredited ultrasound services. All prenatal ultrasounds are performed in the Women's Health Center, and the obstetricians read the ultrasound reports right away. This provides patients with superior care, and allows physicians to address concerns immediately.
  4. Advanced testing. UltraScreen ultrasound test is available. This is a blood test and ultrasound measurement to identify an increased risk of certain birth defects.
  5. Lamaze-certified instructors. Luther Midelfort offers a full realm of childbirth classes, including Lamaze classes taught by Lamaze-certified instructors.
  6. Level II Special Care Nursery. Sometimes there are situations when a baby may require extra medical attention. In these situations, Luther Midelfort has a highly trained medical staff certified in high-risk infant care and the latest technological equipment.
  7. Certified lactation specialists. Mothers who choose to breast-feed receive assistance in the hospital and after discharge from our certified lactation specialists.
  8. Complimentary massage. After labor and delivery, mothers are invited to relax with a massage from one of our certified massage therapists.

These are just a few of many reasons to choose Luther Midelfort for your prenatal care and delivery. Our obstetricians, nurse midwives and nurse maternity counselors will work together to see that your birth experience is unique and special.
