Obstetrical Care

Winneshiek Medical Center welcomes over 200 newborns every year using the combined expertise of a local team of medical professionals, including family medicine physicians, surgeons, a midwife, nurse anesthetists, specially trained obstetric nurses, a lactation consultant and car seat technicians. For high-risk births, families work with their local obstetrical care provider alongside specialists in larger medical facilities equipped to handle possible complications.

Services offered by the OB Department range from childbirth education opportunities, lactation consulting, car seat checks and other health and safety screenings, as well as cultural accommodations.
