Expecting a Baby?

The Center for Women’s Health has a 3D ultrasound machine for prenatal patients. As a special keepsake, each patient will then receive a CD of still photos taken between ten and twenty weeks of pregnancy. Contrary to most institutions where the provider who delivers your baby is the provider on call, most of the time the prenatal care provider you see at Winona Health will be the same one to deliver your baby. We are committed to providing continuity of care whenever possible.
