River Valley Birth Center

Midwifery Care and Community Birth

Consider Yourself at Home...

Birth Centers have a track record of safety and high satisfaction rates by focusing on providing the experience of a "maxi-home" rather than a "mini-hospital." Each aspect of your care is provided by a small team and in a cozy location, making sure you never get lost in the crowd. You will feel at ease asking questions, expressing your thoughts and opinions, and consenting or declining options because of the relationships you develop when working closely with your midwives. Discussions flow freely when you are comfortable and feel supported as you navigate pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood. Receiving prenatal care in the same building where you will birth your child can reduce feelings of anxiety or uncertainty as you can feel at ease in a familiar setting when labor begins. We want you to feel right at home with our care and this space. 

River Valley Birth Center is located in St Peter, Minnesota. Our facility is accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Birth Centers (CABC) and licensed by the Minnesota Department of Health. 

As the only birth center in South Central Minnesota, our midwives serve families from all over Southern Minnesota who are seeking natural birth options.
