Our Title Sponsors

We are proud to have Park Nicollet and HealthPartners as our title sponsors for this event! From pre-conception care through pregnancy, birth and beyond, HealthPartners and Park Nicollet are dedicated to partnering with you. Their compassionate teams recognize this is a special time and will support you, your baby and your choices. Experienced ob/gyn doctors, nurse practitioners and certified-nurse midwives offer different care team options. When it’s time to deliver, their hospital birth centers provide you with a comfortable environment and honor your birth preferences, from water birth to vaginal birth after cesarean. Because they know there are many emotions and new experiences that come along with having a baby, they also have breastfeeding and mental health support for moms. With a new baby, every moment is big. Let’s make good happen, together.

We are so thankful to Breck School for being our host sponsor again this year! Breck is a preschool – grade 12, private school where all grades are joined together in one vibrant community on our beautiful campus in Golden Valley, Minnesota. At Breck, each week, each month, each term, each year brings new opportunities to reimagine, reinvent, and reanimate learning — both for it’s students, and for the school. When perpetually learning students encounter this perpetually learning school, they see the very process of learning not just as a prerequisite for success, but the lens through which they view the entire world.
