Maternity Counseling

Moms meet with a maternity counselor in the clinic near the beginning of pregnancy to complete initial obstetrics paperwork, receive a Mayo Guide to Pregnancy book with suggested reading and get information to start developing a birth plan to meet the needs and interests mom has in mind. In addition, the counselors schedule a pre-admission visit at which mom and Family Birth Center nursing staff will review the birth plan, discuss questions about labor and delivery and tour the facility.
