Personalized Birth & Prenatal Care for Denver, CO and Surrounding Area Residents!

The only birth center in the Denver Metro area that offers natural and water births

Denver Center for Birth & Wellness offers woman-centered prenatal care and birthing services. First, we’ll schedule a meet-and-greet during which you and your family will sit down with the founder and clinical director to learn about the programs we offer. Next, you’ll sign up for your first prenatal visit.

Then, you’ll register with our billing service and put together an estimated payment plan. Families are strongly suggested to take all the classes that we offer, including child birth prep, newborn and breastfeeding classes.

1. Prenatal care

Your first prenatal care appointment is one hour long. During this time, you’ll meet with your certified nurse-midwife in a relaxed environment. This is your opportunity to discuss your concerns, ask questions and get excited about your upcoming birth.

After your initial visit, you’ll visit our office once a month. When you’re 32 months along, you’ll come in every two weeks. Finally, when you reach 37 weeks, you’ll come in every week until delivery.

2. Birth

Every woman has a different birthing process and we let you decide what’s best for you and your baby. Choose from a natural birth or water birth in our comfortable, homey rooms. You’ll have space to move around during labor. You can even invite family and friends to take part in the process! Your certified nurse-midwife and a registered nurse will help you every step of the way. You can count on our team to:

  • Call the midwife due to active labor.
  • Provide a birth photographer to document your experience.
  • Allow you and the baby to enjoy skin-to-skin bonding time.
  • Perform a newborn exam after you’ve bonded.

Since we’re a low-volume birth center, you’ll receive personalized attention during the entire process.

3. Postpartum care

Postpartum care is just as important as prenatal care because you need proper time to rest and recover. We’ll feed you and check on you as needed until you’re ready to go home. You’ll come back after 48 hours to do newborn metabolic screening, CCHD screening and hearing screening. Then, you’ll return for a two-week and six-week visit.

Is a Birth Center Right for Me?

Birth Centers are a great option for healthy, low-risk mamas and babies. To help keep birth center birth safe, the Denver Center for Birth and Wellness follows state regulations for birth center delivery. We will work hard to partner with you to help you maintain a healthy pregnancy and to achieve the birth you want, but certain pre-existing conditions or conditions that develop during pregnancy may make a mama ineligible to deliver at the center. The most common of these include:

  • Previous cesarean
  • Gestational Diabetes
  • Hypertension requiring medication
  • Five or more previous births
  • Weight of 100% over ideal body weight per consultation with Clinical Director
  • Other conditions that may impact the safety of an out-of-hospital birth

If you have questions about a particular situation, please feel free to call or email us to schedule a consult with our Clinical Director.
