Advanced Practice Registered Nurses / Physician Assistants
Minnesota Birth Center is an independently owned and operated practice that is led by certified nurse-midwives in the Twin Cities. The freestanding birth center was founded in 2012 by perinatologist Dr. Steven Calvin, who is also the medical director. The CNM role is focused in the out-of-hospital setting; however, all CNMs have privileges at our collaborating hospitals to provide seamless care for our families. We have provided care at over 2000 and are continuing to grow. Minnesota Birth Center is very proud to have received the 2017 “Best of the Twin Cities” Award from the Birth and Baby Expo, ACNM’s Triple AIM Achievement (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018) and Four Core Perinatal Measure Designee (2015). We provide personalized care to low-risk clients. Please visit us at theminnesotabirthcenter.com to learn more.
