At this time, Allina Health and The Mother Baby Center have temporarily suspended water births.
The Mother Baby Center will test all patients for COVID-19 who are 39 weeks or greater in their pregnancy.
As our commitment to keep our patients and staff safe, all patients who are 39 weeks or greater in their pregnancy will undergo COVID-19 testing prior to giving birth at The Mother Baby Center. Patients will be asked to quarantine themselves following their test.
COVID-19 testing will be by appointment only and is available for The Mother Baby Center patients and must be scheduled at select Allina Health clinics. For non-Allina Health OBGYN patients, we will accept tests from outside facilities.
Please contact your OB team with any concerns or questions.
