The Long Prairie Midwives practice is now as of January 1, 2019 under new ownership. Ruth Wingeier, midwife and past owner of the Long Prairie Midwives practice, is now handing over the reins to the very capable midwife that many have already met, Kristine Devens, CPM, LM. Kris is also a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), an EMT working with the Sauk Centre Ambulance Service, and is trained in Spinning Babies dynamic prenatal bodywork for mothers and craniosacral therapy for babies.
The Long Prairie Midwives was founded in 2011 in order to provide women's health services (maternity care as well as gynecology and well-woman care) at affordable rates. The practice grew so much over the past eight years, that it was necessary to move to a new space across the street from their last practice (formerly the home of Long Prairie Chiropractic and before that Dr. Kintop's Chiropractic office).
There will not be much change. Ruth, Kris, and Karen will continue to work together providing prenatal and postpartum care as well as attend births as they have been doing in the past. Kris and Angie will continue to offer dynamic prenatal bodywork and craniosacral therapy for babies.
