Our caring professionals recognize this is a special time and will support you throughout your pregnancy and birth. Park Nicollet provides a full spectrum of women’s services and offers you a variety of care team options.

  • Ob/Gyn doctors are certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. They provide expertise in a wide range of services and the latest in medical technology.
  • Certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) are registered nurses with a master’s degree in nursing, board-certified through the American College of Nurse-Midwives. Our midwives offer traditional appointments or group prenatal care visits (Centering Pregnancy) that provide an opportunity for more in-depth education.
  • Family Medicine doctors care for the whole family, including infants. Several of our Family Medicine doctors provide prenatal care and deliver babies.
  • Perinatologists are board-certified obstetricians that have received further training and certification in maternal-fetal medicine. Our perinatologists provide expert care including advanced diagnostics and medical or surgical treatment for high-risk or complicated pregnancies. Perinatal services are available by referral, if needed.
  • Nurse practitioners (NPs) are registered nurses with advanced training and education, specializing in women’s health. They work closely with your Ob/Gyn doctor to provide education, diagnosis and treatment during your pregnancy. At most clinics, your visits will alternate between a doctor and NP.
  • Genetic counselors have master’s degrees and advanced training in genetics. Counselors offer consultation, counseling and risk assessment.
