“…we had lots of nerves and questions with this being our first child, but everything was explained so thoroughly and clearly. Both my husband and I were kept at ease during our time in the clinic and hospital.
Our son Myles was a bit stubborn coming into this world, and when our stamina was running thin, and the day was getting long, every single staff member that came into the room greeted us with renewed energy, a bright smile, and always asking if there was anything they could get us before leaving the room – and we felt like they really meant it….” — Kelsey B., Glenwood
GRHS was my first choice with my first pregnancy and it was such a good experience, I went back for my second pregnancy….” — Kari M., Willmar
“… I’ve never had an experience like I have at Glacial Ridge! I recommend them to everyone I know in the area. I cannot thank Dr. Campbell and Megan enough for everything they did to make my labor and delivery as comfortable as they could. This was the best hospital experience ever!…”– Miranda S., Cyrus
“…Jessie (van der Hagen, Certified Nurse Midwife) saw me every week and was there waiting for me when I went into labor at week 36. She welcomed our baby boy into the world; it was the most amazing experience with her calm, quiet presence next to me, guiding me along to the best delivery possible. She was my strength and comforter during the most intense portions of labor and was as excited as we were to meet our little one – as though it was her own. She truly cares for you as if you were the only one in the world. What a great feeling that is!…” — Kari M., Willmar
