Our Mission

Our mission is to provide an unparalleled level of compassionate, holistic, patient-centered, affordable care to women and their families through one of the most transformative and miraculous experiences of their lives.

After having our first child in a local hospital, we decided that our next child would be born in a different setting so we started looking for a midwife. We found Amy at Health Foundations and met her when we were pregnant with our 2nd child. We loved her and the whole experience from that first meeting. Each visit with a midwife at Health Foundations is a wonderful experience. They truly care about you as a person and are very knowledgeable on the whole pregnancy and birthing process. They take time to answer your questions and are always there when you need. The staff cares about each client, and it shows each time you walk in for an appointment. Amy and her staff respect your choices as a mom from the beginning to the end of your pregnancy.

We have had two children with Amy in the comfort of our home. We would be honored to be under her care again if we ever are blessed with another child. If you are in the process of finding a midwife, Health Foundations is a great choice!

Health Foundations deserves 10 stars! We had our first baby at Health foundations and it was more than amazing. Amanda was our midwife and we loved birthing with her! She was calm, positive, just a good spirit and vibe- excellent for labor and delivery and all the months leading up to the big day. We will definitely have future children here :)

Fantastic birth center, with amazing mid-wives! They provided excellent care for us throughout the pregnancy, and helped us have an amazing birth experience at home to cap it all off. We love Amy and all the people who work here caring for moms. Check this birth center out, we love them, and can’t say enough good things about them!

I had my baby at the birth center over a year ago. Health Foundations is AWESOME!! If you are pregnant and considering your options, I encourage you to meet with the team of midwives at Health Foundations. The level of care you receive there is unmatched anywhere in the twin cities (I did my research). They spend an hour with you at each prenatal visit (in a comfortable, home-like atmosphere). They support you throughout your labor and birth, allowing you to move around, eat/drink as needed, labor in the tub, etc. And they are on-call 24/7 after the birth, providing home visits, breastfeeding support, etc. And they have and endless amount of resources for you along the way, moms groups, pre/postnatal yoga (through Blooma), different classes, etc. They can also refer you to other businesses in the area that work specifically with pregnant/ moms, like chiropractors, lactation consultants, massage therapists, etc. I felt very safe and at ease in the hands of my midwives.
