Minnesota Birth Center (MBC) now offers in-house perinatal consults and Level II ultrasounds with Dr. Steve Calvin, the founder and medical director. When your care needs become more complex, MBC is here to offer a high-tech, high-touch care option without ever leaving birth center care.
During my prenatal care at Minnesota Birth Center I received some unexpected news: my pregnancy was no longer going normally. No one wants to learn difficult news or find out they need to see a perinatologist but I did, and I’m so glad it was Dr. Calvin. He worked with me to create a plan of care that addressed my healthcare needs and harmonized with my values. Most of all, I felt safe. The support and thoughtful coordination of care led up to one of the most empowering experiences of my life: delivering my daughter at Minnesota Birth Center.
Dr. Calvin is a board-certified OB/GYN specializing in Maternal Fetal Medicine with over thirty-five years in practice. His belief in midwifery and vision for holistic and comprehensive pregnancy care led him to open Minnesota Birth Center in 2012.
Dr. Calvin received his undergraduate degree at Bethel University and attended medical school at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. Dr. Calvin serves as the Chair of the Program in Human Rights and Medicine at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Calvin and his wife Cindy have welcomed four grandbabies into the hands of midwives at Minnesota Birth Center.
Perinatal consult and Level II ultrasound services are available to any expectant mom receiving pregnancy care at any practice. Consults are available at the St. Paul location in English and Spanish. To schedule, please contact us.
