About Us..

Allina Health Midwifery practice provides outstanding women's health care throughout the life spectrum. Our Midwives offer a focused commitment to the midwifery philosophy and women's health. Our midwives and staff want to provide comprehensive, unbiased care to all women and their families.

Our midwives work in a truly collaborate model of care. We have complete support from our physician colleagues we work with and with Allina Health. Our philosophy is to provide unbiased, evidence based, culturally competent and patient centered care for all women, regardless of socioeconomic status, religious, cultural or sexual orientation. Health care is a trans formative process in learning about your body, emotional and spiritual health, choice in health care and how to be an active participant rather than just a number.

Kathrine is also the proud "momma" of Darwin her goldendoodle.
