Dedicated to the health of you and your baby.

At Minnesota Women’s Care, women have the option of having their birth attended by a midwife or an physician (MD). Many women with low-risk pregnancies prefer to have a midwife for prenatal care and delivery. (Our team always works together to make sure we have identified potential risks.) Some women, for instance those with higher risk pregnancies, prefer to have a physician's care throughout pregnancy and delivery. Some women choose to combine the two options by having a midwife oversee their prenatal care and a physician attend the delivery. We will make the right recommendation to you to assure the best possible care for your unique situation.

Our commitment to the highest quality care.

There are times when a physician's care is essential and our team of experienced OB doctors provides the kind of thoughtful, individualized care our patients deserve. When a C-Section is determined to be necessary, one of our physicians will perform the delivery. There are other rare instances where a physician's care is necessary in the delivery room. Because of our team approach, our physicians are ready and able to assist in any circumstance. A team of professionals is always standing ready to assist should the need arise.

What our moms say:

  • Dr. Mahan is very kind and understanding, I felt very comfortable under her care for me and my twins. She helped answer all my questions and made me feel like I was in good hands. I was supposed to have a c-section because my babies were breech but at 37 weeks they finally turned and it was a successful vaginal delivery. She took great care of me in the operating room.
    P.D.L - Patient
  • Dr. Mahan is amazing!! I can't say enough about Dr. Mahan. She's wonderful. She was my sister's OBGYN and delivered my three nieces and nephews. I came to see her when I was pregnant with my daughter and my experience was nothing short of amazing. She takes her time in appointments to make sure any and all questions you might have are answered, shes super nice and sweet and makes you feel comfortable! I just couldn't imagine seeing anyone else!
    M.T. - Patient
  • Dr.Kelly got me through two very difficult pregnancies. I had complications that were scary and painful for me, but she made them so much easier to go through it. She spoke very clearly to me, made sure I understood everything and that I was well taken care of. She listened to my concerns and helped me find the right answer for me. There was a time that I had to be seen right away and even though she wasn't in the office that day, she came right in. I have never had a doctor more reliable. I don't know how I would have done it without her.
    A.R. - Patient
  • From my first experience to my most recent I have felt very well cared for. I am very relaxed about the whole process and have faith that my baby and I are well cared for.

  • Dr. Kelly is such a caring doctor. She adds humor to every situation. She is a doctor that sits down at your level and talks to you. She makes it clear that she has the time and doesn't make her time with you feel rushed. She is a great listener. She made my c-section exciting and 'fun,' (where sometimes it might otherwise be stressful and not the plan you had been planning on). I would highly recommend her to anyone. I am so thankful that she was able to deliver my baby girl. We will never forget Dr. Kelly, because she truly makes a difference.

  • I have had a great experience with Minnesota women's care at all four locations. When I was going through an ectopic pregnancy they were the most attentive out of all clinics I reached out to. They helped me through every stage including surgery. Naturally when I got pregnant again I went back and was able to meet many of the doctors and midwives. Now I am about to deliver my first child and am so excited!

  • I wasn't sure what to expect given that this was my first time ever meeting with a chiropractor and meeting someone for my pregnancy sciatica pain that I've had my last pregnancy as well. But Erin has made me feel really comfortable and made it easy for me to trust her with my body. She thoroughly explains what she is doing so I don't become alarmed and also in a way that I understand. Overall, it's been a great experience!
    M.Y. - Patient
  • Dr. Kelly is our "all in the family" physician and my daughters and I have been her patients for many years. Both in my own care and during the deliveries of my grandchildren, she has been encouraging, supportive, and exceptionally skilled. I continue to have the highest level of confidence in her care.
    C.H. - Patient
  • I am 39 weeks pregnant and have been having issues with sciatic nerve pain and groin cramping. Erin has adjusted me during both my pregnancies and has given me so much relief; from migraines, neck pain, to ligament pain relief, and now to my current issues. She is wonderful with her patients.
    L.E. - Patient
  • I'm so glad I am a patient at the best clinic in the world with the best OBs ever. They delivered both of my children (one who will be 9 tomorrow) and soon to be a 3rd child....I followed them from Allina to Dr. Ashford's clinic and so happy I did!

  • I had such an amazing experience with Minnesota Woman's Care. This was my first pregnancy so I was very nervous going into it but the staff is top notch! So friendly and knowledgeable. I ended up being high risk so I met with the ultrasound techs once a week and they are just the sweetest people and my midwife, Heather, who delivered my baby was amazing! I met with all the staff during my pregnancy and I don't have a bad thing to say about any of them! I'll def be going back for my next pregnancy. My son was born Dec 15th... a healthy baby boy!
    N.Mc. - Twin Cities
  • The entire staff at MN Women's Care is fantastic. My pregnancy required frequent visits and monitoring and I always felt they provided me with top notch care with a friendly, fun loving smile. I feel truly blessed that I found this practice and I would highly recommend the whole staff!

  • Dr. Amy Kelly has been our OB-GYN for the past 8 years and my husband and I cannot say enough good things about her. She is a highly skilled and competent practitioner and surgeon. We have recommended her countless times to friends and family, whether it be for OB services or to have surgery, and never once has she disappointed. Whether it is a highly complex surgical procedure or the attentive care needed during pregnancy, Dr. Kelly exceeds expectations in all that she does.
    S.D. - Patient
  • Today was my 34 week OB appointment with Heather. Heather is such a comfort to me and addresses my concerns confidently and thoughtfully. I've had so many great experiences with Heather, including the care of my first pregnancy and delivery of my daughter. Trusting Heather with my care has been easy and even fun!
    L.G. - Patient
  • My wife and I recently welcomed our first child into the world and had such a great experience thanks to Minnesota Women's Care. We had the opportunity to see 3 different and great midwifes and doctors throughout our 37 week adventure. These 3 women made our experience throughout the pregnancy fantastic, while answering all our questions and making sure we were prepared (as prepared as you can be for your first!).
    J.D. - Patient
  • Dr. Miller has been great to work with. I had a complicated pregnancy and she was very helpful. She worked with me to create a birth plan. She was willing to come in on her day off to perform a emergency c-section due to fear of pre-eclampsia symptoms. She spent time answering questions and I had a lot of them. I would recommend her!
    Anon - Patient
  • I really appreciate Dr. Kelly's expertise and honestly. I've known her for 10 years, through 4 children and now working through the changes of turning 40! She has always been so down to earth and real. She's not just interested in my medical health but my overall well being. She remembers the little things even from years before. She's just amazing!
    J.B. - Patient
  • My first two babies were delivered by Elizabeth Radford. The care that the midwives gave me and my family was EXCEPTIONAL. As a brand new pregnant mama, I was heard. I was not looked down upon for wanting to go into labor spontaneously and have as minimal intervention as possible. I was confident that in the event that an intervention was medically necessary during birth my midwife was more than capable not only “handle it” but to make necessary decisions to do the best for the baby and I.

  • My experience with Dr. McDonald has been nothing but great. She was very knowledgeable and I trusted her decision making when it came to my health. I'm so happy to have a 3rd great experience here at CHCW with all 3 healthy babies delivered.

  • I had a great experience at this clinic. Couldn't ask for more, I had really great supportive staff and nurses. I would come back next time for my prenatal. Thank you everyone! :)

  • We had just recently moved back to Minnesota in May of 2018, because we were expecting our second little boy and our realator is actually the one who recommended MWC to me. Our first birth was a little traumatic for our family and he ended up in a c-section. So, when I got to MWC and initially met with Rachel Gates (CNM), there was a lot of reassurance, encouragement and support through that appointment. Being a type 1 diabetic, I wasn't sure that they would want to take on a high risk pregnancy, but instead they were more than supportive and ready for the road ahead.

    [...] The whole staff at MWC is so nice, they get to know you and treat you and your family with such respect and kindness. If you have any need, I would recommend MWC as your place to go. MWC is the only place I will be going to during future pregnancies.

  • Julie Ann is very kind and understanding! She was very kind and helpful. She was not judgmental at all and I felt like she listened to everything I said and did a great job explaining everything to me that I asked about!
    J.P. - Patient
  • I just wanted to let you know our baby twins are doing awesome! I will never forget you. You saved my life and my twins lives, especially Olivia. You were such a blessing in our lives and I want you to know I really don't think we would be here without you. I hope you are well!

  • There is something so different about midwifery care that I was drawn to right away with all three of these women -- Sara Brown, Robyn Cox, and Elizabeth Radford. Right away I felt heard, cared for and in very skilled hands with them. Having midwives who considered my unique birth history and were committed to supporting my specific birthing needs, both emotionally and physically, was irreplaceable. Even though labor is very difficult, under the care of a skilled midwife like these women, it doesn't need to be traumatic.
    Patient - Rachael
  • Erin does an amazing job my feet have been swollen and the baby has been on my pelvis bone and every time I come in and she adjusts me she gets him to move. Also, she very knowledgeable I was having a hard time sleeping and she was able to help with that. I would tell anyone who is pregnant to go see Erin she does amazing job and is just so caring and friendly. I wish more Chiropractors out there would be more like her!

  • Heather DeJarnett is one of the best provider I have seen at MN Women's Care. Highly recommend if you ever have any issue with GYN.

  • Andrea Brockberg makes me feel as comfortable as a woman can be during an OB visit. She keeps the invasive procedures as quick as possible. She is also very friendly and makes me forget that I'm at the doctor's office. It's weird to think about, but it makes me happy to come here. I've been seeing her for over 10 years, from pregnancy to annual exams, and I don't mind going to the OB at all because she's so happy, nice, and funny. Remembers my kids' names and my husband. Very personal and professional.
    A.R. - Patient
  • I have been going to Minnesota Women's Care for a couple years now. I first went when there was only one MD and a couple of midwives. It has been exciting to see how it has grown. I started going to MN Women's Care for basic annual care and have stuck with them through my first pregnancy. The care they they provide is top notch.

    I love the option of seeing a midwife throughout pregnancy care and have had wonderful experiences with both Heather and Andrea. I have had more ultrasounds than most pregnant women generally get because of some complications and the ultrasound staff have been amazing too. I love that the tech's can communicate to you what they see and you don't have to wait to be told by the doctor. When I had complications the tech I saw at the ER couldn't tell me anything, not even heartbeat, that was scary (I do understand why she couldn't). When I went back to MN Women's Care the next day the ultrasound tech showed me exactly what she was looking at and what she found. That alone ensures that I will come back to MN Women's Care as long as they offer services. They really make you feel like you matter and that your concerns are real when you have them.

  • Dr. Mahan always has time to listen. There are many things I appreciate about Dr. Mahan but one that is very important to me is that I never feel rushed thru my appointments. She always takes her time to listen and is always present.

  • I had a wonderful experience under the care of Sara Brown for the birth of my third child. Her calm, kind demeanor and patient presence made me feel relaxed and safe throughout my labor and delivery, and helped me have a successful unmedicated VBAC. I received excellent care before, during and after delivery. I am thankful to have found Sara Brown!
    Patient - Emily
  • Dr. Kelly is one of the best ob/gyns I have ever worked with! Her knowledge is amazing and her personality is even better! Dr. Kelly gives great suggestions for dealing with any questions or concerns that I have, and she knows the latest medical treatments. I trusted her completely with my prenatal care and the delivery of my twins 7 years ago. Now I continue to see her yearly because she is so personable and takes great care of me.

  • Dr. Erin is always more than willing to take the time to explain things to you so that you understand what it is she is working on with you. I have never felt rushed-even when she is busy. She makes it a priority check in and see how things are going since she saw you last and is always giving ways to achieve improvement in your health. All around I think Dr. Erin is an exceptional provider.

  • This is the place to be for top notch women's health care. The staff is amazing and truly care about your needs and concerns. Having had the pleasure of working with all the core staff during my pregnancy I must say that it was the best experience I could have hoped for.
    Christina - Minnesota
  • I enjoy coming to Minnesota Woman's Care because I feel like I am getting the best treatment possible and the staff makes me very comfortable. Dr. Ashford figured out what was wrong with me and why I was in so much pain when no one else could. He was with me through my whole pregnancy and even after. I feel like I am very well taken care of and I would highly recommend Dr. Ashford to any woman.
    M.C. - Minnesota
  • Erin Epperly is my saving grace! I first saw Erin when I was barely able to move due to a sore back/pelvic in my first pregnancy. Not only was she able to relieve my pain but she has also been a great source for all of my first time momma questions and concerns. I absolutely love my appointments with Erin. I am always more comfortable and I always walk away with more information and pointers to continue care outside of her office. I feel very comfortable with Erin and feel that I can tell her anything that is on my mind, even if I'm crazy. Love her - would HIGHLY recommend her to everyone I know!
    D.K. - Patient
  • Dr. Ashford provided a consult for my husband and me regarding our fertility concerns. He actually helped eliminate several fears, provided balanced medical information, and gave us practical advice on moving forward with our family plans.

But Erin has made me feel really comfortable and made it easy for me to trust her with my body. She thoroughly explains what she is doing so I don't become alarmed and also in a way that I understand. Overall, it's been a great experience!

  • What's not to love about Doctor Kelly, she listens to any concerns you may have and leaves you feeling so confident & calm. She wants to hear about your family and see how you are doing as an individual. She has been my OB for all of my kids and has guided my husband and I on this journey so smoothly. She gives great explanations for each decision she wants to make to help guide you on this journey which has always given me such trust in her to not doubt her choices.
    M.K. - Patient
  • I first met Dr. Mahan 12 years ago. I came with my sister to one of her appointments, and I got to announce to both of them that I was expecting my first child. She has since delivered all four of my children. She is absolutely wonderful! She is more than a doctor to me, she is a beloved member of our family and we are so grateful! She is warm and genuine and makes you feel super comfortable. Her excitement in the delivery room is contagious - you would think it was her first delivery by her joy each and every time! I highly recommend her to all of my friends.

  • Minnesota Womans Care Woodbury is amazing! The office is super clean and everyone is so friendly. I had the pleasure to meet all the midwifes during my pregnancy and loved having Heather DeJarnett be the main midwife I went to. She always made me feel like no question was dumb during my pregnancy and always managed to find the perfect words to make me feel comfortable with the different changes that were going on during my pregnancy. She even managed to make it into the hospital to see how I was feeling after my labor and that shows her true passion and love for her job! Hands down Heather is an amazing midwife and I’ll be recommending many to be moms to go to her.
