    Biography

    What I Do
    As a certified nurse midwife at the Birth Center at CentraCare - St. Cloud Hospital, I see myself as an advocate for women. I want to help them have the birth experience they desire. Pregnancy and birth are such an emotional experience, and I want to be that person a woman can trust to help guide her to a healthy birth. I feel honored to be invited to share in such a special time in their lives. My special interests include:

    • Adolescent Health and Pregnancy
    • Health maintenance/Lifestyle Medicine
    • Postpartum care and pelvic floor health
    • Fitness/postpartum fitness

    Why I Love My Work
    When I was in nursing school, my OB clinical preceptor was a midwife. She shared stories of births that made me know that becoming a midwife is what I wanted to do one day. I had a midwife for both of my pregnancies and births. My midwife was the reason I did not have a cesarean section. I pushed for 3½ hours with my first baby, and my midwife believed in me more than I did in myself. And she was right -- I went on to have a vaginal birth! I love when I can empower women to believe they have the strength.

    Bringing life into this world has always been my favorite part of being a midwife. It is such an honor to know a family trusted you to help bring their baby into this world. I never take for granted that I get to touch their baby first or be part of that moment when a couple sees their baby for the first time, and I get to see that love in their eyes. It is truly a blessing to do what I do!

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, hiking and spending time with family.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO
