Birth Partners Meeting Feb. 11th, 5PM Congregational Church

After several public meetings, it has become evident that there are many people in this community invested in ensuring quality prenatal and postnatal services for our women and their families.  Sawtooth Mountain Clinic is behind this 100%.  The staff and providers at Sawtooth Mountain Clinic are dedicated to continuing our excellent prenatal and postnatal care and in light of the changes that are taking place, to expanding and improving our care to meet the growing needs of our families.

At a recent meeting, attended by over 40 people, many excellent ideas were put forth as to how child birth in the County can be enhanced.  Some of the examples included:

Forming a Doula Cooperative
Transportation assistance
Developing a Health House in Duluth
Creating new partnership between our Clinic providers and delivery providers in other areas.
Ongoing prenatal and postnatal care at the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic
Maintenance of emergency OB services at Cook County North Shore Hospital with providers from Sawtooth Mountain Clinic
Researching successful strategies other rural areas are using
A book dedicated to honoring the birth stories of Cook County

These ideas, in addition to those not thought of yet, will come together in a new model we are calling “Birth Partners”.   It is our hope that, as the name implies, our community will partner with us in the process.

If you are interested, in any capacity, in helping grow and implement Birth Partners:
