We are proud that Minnesota Birth Center is the first freestanding birth center in Minneapolis. At MBC, we believe that pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period are natural, healthy and significant experiences in the life of a woman. Women who choose to give birth at MBC receive an exceptional level of personal attention and care from our Certified Nurse Midwives and Registered Nurses in a comfortable, home-like environment. Our birth center is located directly across the street from Abbott Northwestern Hospital where our CNMs have privileges. In the case of a transfer, our CNMs will continue your care at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. If needed, they will consult with our collaborative physician group, Associates in Women’s Health. Our birth center is nationally accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Birth Centers and licensed by the state of Minnesota. We have begun providing prenatal care and are currently accepting new clients!
