We are now accepting nominations for the 2017 Best of the Twin Cities!  Please read the following and then complete the nomination form. 

Spread the word! 

The purpose of the Best of the Twin Cities Birth and Baby Awards is to honor and celebrate local organizations or individuals who exemplify the mission of the Twin Cities Birth & Baby Expo.

The mission of the Twin Cities Birth and Baby Expo is to connect local families with empowering, multicultural resources and education that promote healthy birth and parenting and to celebrate the transformative experience of becoming parents. Award winners must also adhere to the following statements in their business practices and beliefs:

  • World Health Organization recommendation of low cesarean rate (10-15%).
  • Availability of VBAC for all women with prior cesarean, meaning if you are a midwife or doctor you will accept women with prior cesareans into your care for pregnancy and birth.
  • World Health Organization recommendation that “exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months is the optimal way of feeding infants. Thereafter infants should receive complementary foods with continued breastfeeding up to 2 years of age or beyond.”

This is your chance to publicly recognize the person or organization that you believe makes a difference for women and families.  Take the time to nominate!

Nominations will be accepted until October 12, 2017.  You cannot nominate yourself and you may only nominate someone once, and must have a valid email address.  

The Expo committee reserves the right to review each nomination for authenticity and will delete any that are not valid or not fitting with our mission or the rules.
