Mayo Clinic OB Nest is part of our maternity program in Eau Claire, and is for women with low-risk pregnancies looking for a more active role in their prenatal care and the convenience of fewer clinic visits. In this program, prenatal care combines traditional office visits with Connected Care visits and in-home monitoring.
HOW MAYO CLINIC OB NEST WORKS
At your initial obstetrics (OB) visit, your provider will determine whether you are a candidate for Mayo Clinic OB Nest. If you are interested in participating and approved by your provider, you will be given the equipment and materials to begin. Throughout your pregnancy, you will listen to your baby’s heart beat and measure your own blood pressure at home with a fetal doppler and blood pressure cuff. You will communicate with an experienced OB nurse through scheduled phone calls or messaging on Patient Online Services, our online patient portal, during a Connected Care visit, approximately every other visit that you have with your provider.
