The Ultimate Birth Experience

Welcome to the Maple Grove Hospital Family Birth Center: A nurturing, calming place to introduce your baby to the world. Our spa-like setting is designed with mothers and babies’ needs in mind—and so is the expert, family centered care.

The Labor and Delivery Experience

  • Our spa-like private rooms, universally raved about by our families, are designed to appreciate nature and promote healing.
  • We are the second largest Family Birth Center for deliveries in Minnesota. Our experienced staff and devoted nurses have assisted in more than 35,000 births.
  • We make sure you are always involved in making decisions as your labor and delivery progresses.
  • The nursing team has many ways to help relieve your labor pain. Pain relief options include birthing balls, soaking tubs, breathing techniques, integrative therapy, and a variety of laboring positions. Pain management is a high priority during labor and after delivery, and we do offer nitrous oxide as one option.
  • Our nurses are specially trained in lactation and can help you get started with breastfeeding if that is in your plan.
  • We also offer lactation support from internationally certified lactation consultants (also called IBCLCs) for those needing extra help. They’re available 7 days a week—including evenings—plus outpatient services and community services, even if you did not birth your baby here.
  • We are the first hospital in the state to offer placenta donation. Mothers who have elective C-sections can choose to donate their placentas, which is an incredible scientific breakthrough that can help others heal from burns and other wounds.
  • Our Level III NICU can support babies as early as 26 weeks of gestation.

Our Baby Friendly Designation

We’re proud of our Baby Friendly designation, a rigorous training program and standard that only about 500 hospitals nationwide have achieved. We center mothers and babies first, because getting you off to the best possible start is job number one.

Our Baby Friendly designation means, among other things:

  • We promote practices that facilitate mother-baby bonding, including learning and following your baby’s cues.
  • We protect the Golden Hour after your baby is born, encouraging skin-to-skin contact for both vaginal and C-section births, with as little commotion as possible.
  • All our nurses are specially trained in breastfeeding best practices and encourage the practice of only feeding breastmilk to babies. We offer donor breastmilk if supplementation is needed. We also respect the decision or need to formula feed, and will make sure you get the best information on formula feeding for your baby. We empower you to feed your baby through whatever choice you make.
  • We have lactation consultants available for breastfeeding challenges and advice.
  • We set you up for breastfeeding success with education that will help you when you go home, and offer support on an outpatient basis as well.
  • You “room in” with your newborn. That means you spend as much time together as possible in those early hours of your baby’s life.

A Healthy Baby is Worth the Wait

Gestational Carriers

We bring families together—even when they start out on opposite sides of the globe.

Our social worker and perinatal nurse navigator help you manage the details so you can stay focused on the new joy arriving soon.

Labor & Delivery

We’re here to help you have the best birth experience possible, whatever your wishes may be. Ultimately, our goal is healthy babies and healthy moms, and we support whatever options available to make that happen for you. We also promote an atmosphere of calming, healing support as you bond with your new baby.

When everything is falling apart, we are here to help you try to put some of the pieces back together to work toward a new normal.

To get your healing and family bonding off to the best possible start, we make sure you get all the care you need: adequate rest, soaks in the deep tub, lactation support, pain management, and more. A doctor from your clinic will visit you each day, and a registered nurse and nursing assistant will be assigned to your care. Family members and other visitors are welcome for as long as you feel comfortable—and we love introducing siblings. We make sure you get all the support, advice, rest, and care you need to heal and thrive after giving birth, which includes ensuring you are all well-equipped and ready to go home.
