MN Women's Care Provider Profile
Certified Nurse Midwife
Fartun was drawn to be a nurse midwife after a traumatic birth she experienced herself. As an experienced RN, she was determined to offer more care for women – especially during pregnancy and birth. So, after working for 12 years as a nurse in various medical areas, Fartun returned to school to earn her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree in Midwifery from the University of Minnesota. We are delighted she has chosen to join the team at Minnesota Women's Care.
Fartun is passionate about working with women across their lifespan. She believes in holistic, woman-centered care that incorporates all aspects of a woman’s life. She is especially honored to attend births and she loves to provide care and support to women and their families during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
Fartun speaks, reads and writes Somali proficiently. Her goal is to incorporate her background, education, and experience to become a leader in improving women's health and access to health care.
About her philosophy of care, Fartun says:
"I am passionate about serving minority populations, especially those with cultural and language barriers. I want to help bridge the gap and reduce barriers to healthcare. I really enjoy developing relationships with my patients, listening to their stories, and partnering with them to provided informed care."
Fartun's life is busy ... like the women she sees every day at Minnesota Women's Care. She is mom to 4 children from 13 to 6 years old – three boys, and a girl. She loves to travel, work out, and spend time with her husband and kids "doing kid stuff and family stuff -- whatever that might be."
