Katelyn Neufeld, CNM, provides midwifery care to women at Western OB/GYN, A Division of Ridgeview Clinics. She sees patients at Two Twelve Medical Center in Chaska and the Ridgeview Professional Building in Waconia.
Neufeld received her nursing degree from Crown College in St. Bonifacius, Minn., and later earned her Master’s in Certified Nurse-Midwifery from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minn., while working as a nurse at Ridgeview.
“I recognized my passion in caring for women through pregnancy and childbirth when I volunteered at a birthing center in Uganda after graduating from high school,” Neufeld said. “Since then, I have supported hundreds of women in childbirth, first as a birth doula, then as a labor and delivery nurse, and now as a midwife. I have a strong desire to promote family-centered care and advocate for shared decision-making as women navigate pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and beyond."
