Having your baby at St. Francis ensures that you will have family-centered maternity care and education during this very important time. We are committed to providing holistic, healing care while respecting your birthing choices and traditions. Our providers will be with you every step of the way, with healing concepts and state-of-the-art medical interventions to manage discomfort to help you focus on your journey of birth. St. Francis delivered more than 1200 babies last year alone.
The unique partnership of St. Francis allows patients whose physicians are part of Allina Medical Clinics, Park Nicollet Health Services and independent physicians in the southwest metro area to use the Family Birth Place. Additionally, patients who use Park Nicollet Health Services have the option of using the certified nurse midwives.
Your comfort is critical in the birth process. Because of this, we've designed our family birth rooms with beautiful décor and all the comforts of home. We provide a relaxed environment in which your labor and birth can be a loving and rewarding experience. We offer labor and delivery rooms with separate postpartum rooms.
Spacious accommodations allow your support person to stay with you, rest when needed and share every special moment. The inviting and comforting atmosphere—complete with rocking chairs, sleepers, televisions, DVD players and CD players—create the perfect environment for your baby's birth, as well as much-needed rest and recovery after your baby arrives.
Our classes help you understand and cope with the physical and emotional changes of pregnancy, childbirth and life as a new parent. Learn about and register for a class.
