  • Pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum care
  • Family planning services, including contraception counseling and management

The North Memorial Difference

  • North Memorial midwives believe that pregnancy and birth are natural processes, and are committed to meeting your individual needs and wishes for your birth experience.
  • We encourage and support labor options, including position changes, massage, aromatherapy, the birthing ball, water immersion as well as waterbirth, and pain medication.
  • North Memorial nurse midwives are supported 24/7 by North Memorial OB physicians (called Laborists) so patients receive some of the most comprehensive obstetrical care in the Twin Cities.
