The OB Shared Care Program is an integrated health care model. Your family medicine provider in partnership with obstetricians-gynecologists (OB-GYN) within Mayo Clinic Health System work together to deliver the best care to you during your pregnancy and delivery.
How does it work with your doctor?
You will receive prenatal and postpartum care from your family medicine provider, continuing to have easy access to the same provider before and after delivering your baby.
What are the benefits?
Who takes care of my baby in the hospital?
A family medicine provider or pediatrician from Mayo Clinic Health System will provide care while in the hospital. The care will be transitioned to your family medicine provider upon discharge. If you choose to circumcise your baby boy, please discuss this with your family medicine provider prior to delivery to make arrangements.
Who takes care of my baby and me when we leave the hospital?
The birth center staff is more than happy to help you in arranging your follow-up postpartum and newborn care. Please remind staff you are part of the OB Shared Care Program and share the name of your family care provider. Staff will assist you in scheduling follow-up appointments and continued care at your primary care clinic.
