Video visits with your OB-GYN or midwife

Personalized women’s health care delivered right to you

Easy, convenient and personal, video visits bring your OB-GYN or midwife and the health care you need to you – wherever you may be.

Just like an office visit, you’ll be face-to-face with your doctor or midwife. They’ll listen to your health concerns and symptoms, ask questions to understand your medical history and work with you to create a tailored treatment plan, when needed. Video visits are billed the same as in-person visits.

Now is always the time to take care of yourself. Don’t wait. Easy access to quality women’s health care is at your fingertips.

What can be treated with an OB-GYN video visit?

Whether it’s another painful period, the first step in the family planning process or you’re looking for relief from hot flashes, you can receive treatment and counseling for a range of health needs, including:

  • Birth control
  • Frequent urination
  • Incontinence
  • Infertility
  • Menopause
  • Preconception counseling
  • Prenatal care
  • Problem periods, including abnormal bleeding, heavy flow or intense cramps
  • Sexual health
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)

And depending on your health care needs, your doctor or midwife may recommend a combination of in-clinic, video or phone visits as part of your ongoing care or treatment plan.

How do you get started with online OB-GYN visits? It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Make an appointment online for a day and time that works for you. You can also call your local clinic to set up an appointment. Your appointment details, the link to access your video visit, and tools for modifying your appointment will be available through your HealthPartners online account.
  2. Fill out this consent (PDF) and have it ready for your appointment. This gives us the ability to use your information to coordinate care, treatment and more.
  3. About an hour before your scheduled appointment, you will receive an email or text message with an encrypted link to join your visit. When you are ready, click on the link on your mobile device or type the link into your internet browser to join on your desktop. You can also join your visit through your HealthPartners online account.

That’s it! Your OB-GYN or midwife will join the session when your appointment begins.

Additional information about how video visits work can be found on our video visits page.

Are there other visit options? There sure are.

If video isn’t the best option for you, you can absolutely make an appointment for a phone or in-clinic visit. Call your clinic to schedule both types of appointments.
