Wonderful Care and Amazing Birthing Rooms

“The nurses I had (but especially Gina L.) were so sweet and explained things well. I’ve always had spontaneous labor - 3 times - but had to be induced this time around with baby #4. Just all-around a wonderful nursing team - wonderful bedside manner and they were prompt. They granted my wishes on my birth plan. The birthing rooms (where we ended up staying the entire stay) are amazing!”

-Marissa P.


Exceptional, Personalized Care

“Jessie and all the nurses made us feel seen, heard, and valued at every appointment, during labor, and through postpartum. I felt that my birth plan was supported and stuck to as much as possible. The care of the nurses during recovery was exceptional. They were great at anticipating our needs and helping us feel comfortable. It felt like we were genuinely cared for and not just another name to cross off the list during rounds. Overall, we would HIGHLY recommend GRHS! ”

-Staci K.


Care and Compassion Through Two Pregnancies

“Jessie and her nurse, Krista, have taken exceptional care for me and my family throughout two pregnancies. Between Jessie's calming nature and Krista's ability to always be there with any concerns, they are a great team! They both made sure I was seen in a timely manner and took care of all my questions/concerns. GRHS is truly blessed to have this type of care and compassion on its team. Thank you again to all the staff at GRHS for making my motherhood journey the best it could be!"

1st Time Mom

“My experience at GRHS as a first-time mom was beyond wonderful! From my clinic visits to delivery, I felt that Jessie van der Hagen and her team of nurses guided me the entire way. I also loved the heartfelt care from the nursing staff during my hospital stay!”

Top-Notch, Fabulous Care at Glacial Ridge

“Our whole experience with GRHS was top-notch! Fletcher was our second baby and our first time using Glacial Ridge. Doctoring with Jessie and her nurse, Krista, for all of my prenatal care, his birth and hospital stay, postnatal care, and well-child checks have been the best we could ask for! All of the nurses are FABULOUS! The care from Jessie and the nurses is so personalized. No one makes you feel like they are too busy for you or rushes anything! Amazing experience! I give a 10/10 recommendation for anyone seeking maternity and family medicine care to see Jessie and have your baby at Glacial Ridge!”

An Amazing Start to Our New Family
“When we got home we reflected on our delivery and stay experience at GRHS so many times and agreed that it was a 100% positive experience. We were so happy and impressed by the care we received, the beautiful new facility, and just by the staff in general. Each one of them made us feel so comfortable and grateful to have met them.”

-Justine and Aaron L.


One Experience is All it Took
“I was 30 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child and wasn’t happy with the care I was receiving at a different facility. When one of my dearest friends suggested giving Glacial Ridge a try, I agreed I would make an appointment and go from there. I had one appointment and that’s all it took to know that I wanted to deliver my baby at Glacial Ridge. My OB appointments were always great and extremely thorough, which I appreciated. When it came time for delivery (via c-section), it was a little scary but everyone truly sticks to the motto of heartfelt care; we were treated like family by everyone we encountered…The care is truly ABOVE and BEYOND!”
