Water Birth: What To Do

on April 23, 2014

As I am sure many of you have read that Allina Hospitals has temporarily suspended all water births at their hospitals.  We are in the process of trying to get that re-established as quickly as possible.  In the mean time we want all our patients who have consented for a water birth to continue to have that option.  What you will need to do is sign a consent for Regions Hospital and make sure you meet their criteria.  They will be happy to accommodate your desire for a water birth.  At your next visit ask your midwife and she can answer all your questions and get your consent signed and faxed over to Regions Hospital.  Sorry for this unfortunate circumstance and know that we are doing everything we can to meet your needs.
