The Mother Baby Center turns 3

The Mother Baby Center at Abbott Northwestern and Children’s Minnesota, located in Minneapolis, turns 3 years old today.

Happy birthday to us! Happy birthday to us!

On Feb. 4, 2013, we opened our first center — The Mother Baby Center in Minneapolis — as a collaboration between Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and Allina Health’s Abbott Northwestern Hospital.

Our goal?

To deliver the best in mother and baby care.

In our third year, we delivered 5,445 babies, a 5.6 percent increase from our first year and an average of nearly 15 babies per day. We also added a pair of siblings of our own in the past year. In July, we welcomed The Mother Baby Center at Mercy with Children’s Minnesota in Coon Rapids. The Mother Baby Center at United and Children’s Minnesota, located in St. Paul, joined the family in October.

Numbers for the third year of The Mother Baby CenterAs we celebrate turning 3 today, most importantly we thank all of the mothers, babies, families and health care professionals for making The Mother Baby Center a great place to have a baby and a great place to be a baby.

Here’s to another year and many more.
