The Twin Cities are rich with options for mamas during pregnancy and afterwards. We have put together our favorites! Tried and true. These are businesses us and our families have worked with and time and time again they prove to be stellar.
Naturally Aligned Family Chiropractic: Help prep your body for labor and birth! Naturally Aligned specializes in pregnancy and newborns which includes the Webster technique. There are two locations, St. Paul and White Bear Lake. The providers will also attend labors!
SUNU Wellness Center: If you live west, SUNU Wellness Center is a wonderful place for chiropractic care, cranial sacral and overall wellness. The providers at SUNU also will attend labors. They are located in Minneapolis and Minnetonka.
Blooma: Connect with your baby before they arrive. At Blooma, you can expect just that. Their instructors are specially trained in prenatal yoga. After your baby makes their arrival they have classes for you and baby too! Blooma has their main studio in Minneapolis and a smaller one in St. Paul.
Childbirth Collective: The Twin Cities is lucky to have the largest doula community in the nation. Rather than blindly finding a doula using Google; check out the Childbirth Collective. They have a large listing of doulas making it easy to find the right fit for you. They also have parent topic nights each week that are free and open to the public. You can find these classes in Minneapolis and St. Paul. This is a great place to find a postpartum doula as well.
Birth Photography: Like doulas there are a lot of wonderful birth photographers in the area. Some of our favorites to work with are Meredith Westin (she even has a special package for Health Foundations Birth Center!), Raven Ivory, Kadi Tiede, Swaddle Shots and Jen Liv.
Grow Pediatrics: Grow Pediatrics has three locations, Inver Grove Heights, Richfield and St. Paul (at Health Foundations Birth Center!). This group is just wonderful. We love working with their providers and so do many of our families.
Wildtree Wellness: After your baby arrives the dynamics in your family will adjust. Sometimes someone to talk to about this can be very helpful. Wildtree Wellness has lovely providers to support you through postpartum whether it is relationship changes after baby or postpartum depression.
Postpartum Support Minnesota (PPSM): PPSM is a group of mental health & perinatal practitioners, service organizations, and mother volunteers who provide services to those struggling with a pregnancy, loss, or postpartum mood disorder through the Helpline, professional training, our resource list and website.
HCMC Mother Baby Program: The Mother-Baby Program at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis is a wonderful program to help new moms deal with mental health. This program keeps mom and baby together.
