Individualized care for all phases of your life!
In 2017, Nicolle Uban opened the Brainerd Lakes Area’s first freestanding birth center, Luna Women’s Wellness and Birth Center. Luna was created to give women the option to birth out of the hospital, in a safe, comfortable environment. Nicolle opened Luna to invest in the community, to serve the next generation of mothers and families, and to create access to quality midwifery care throughout rural Central Minnesota. In 2021, Nicolle sold the birth center to Debbie Sahlstrom of Kairos Midwifery, and it became the second location for A New Story Birth Center. Nicolle still runs her practice Luna Women’s Wellness and BIrth out of the same space and continues to provide midwifery care to families in the Lakes Area. Luna has a small, but devoted care team that allows us to maintain a personal connection and provide individualized care to each woman and family we serve. We are here for all families: Black, White, First Nations, Latina, Asian, Christian, Muslim, LGBTQ, teens, and first-time parents. We are truly an open door for anyone looking for sensitive and affirming care! Welcome to our Luna family!
