Spearmint is used to assist with nausea, fatigue, headache, indigestion, and cramps.
You and your baby deserve our very best.
We believe every mother-to-be deserves the best maternity care there is. At the Birth Center, our family centered approach supports the vital role your family members play in ensuring the health and well-being of you and your baby during your pregnancy. HCMC also received a Baby-Friendly Hospital designation in 2015 recognizing us as a great place for your baby to get the best start possible.
We provide care that respects your preferences. We will communicate with you and involve you and your family in every aspect of planning your care.
Because every woman’s pregnancy and personal preferences are unique, we offer a variety of childbirth experiences. Whichever path you choose, your care will be provided by highly experienced physicians and certified nurse-midwives.
HCMC, Minnesota’s premier teaching hospital, is home to the largest maternity care teaching site in the midwest so you can expect expert and innovative care.
