Welcome to Mountain Midwifery Center!

Welcome to the oldest & most experienced birth center in the Front Range – licensed, freestanding and midwife-run. Mountain Midwifery Center provides a full range of pregnancy and well-woman services for clients in the Denver Metro Area, the front range, and across Colorado. We are a Colorado company focused on healthy babies and healthy families. Our team provides the best in prenatal education, labor support, newborn baby care, postpartum health and more. Please consider us for you maternity and gynecological care needs.

What makes Mountain Midwifery Center (MMC) unique?

  • State of the Art Facility – MMC’s facility was designed and built to be a birth center. Our sound proofing, birth tub design, water heating capacity and electrical generator for power outages are all designed from years of birth center experience. You may not see all the differences in our birth suites, but they are there for your family.
  • Colorado-owned – MMC is a locally-owned and independent freestanding facility.
  • Midwife-run – We are not hospital owned, nor are we a corporate cookie-cutter chain. Our midwives can practice full-scope midwifery. Many midwifery practices are MD-supervised and limited in their ability to create the customized birth plan a family needs.
  • Water birth – MMC has performed more water births than any facility in Colorado. Many local practices claim to do water birth, but in truth only allow moms to labor in water, not deliver. And some only allow their tubs to be used on “slow days” or with certain staff. The understanding of water birth, when it is appropriate and when it’s not, doesn’t happen automatically when a facility puts in a tub. It takes research, training and leadership.
  • Licensing – MMC is the oldest licensed birth center in Colorado. Licensing is important because some hospitals call themselves birth centers without any commitment to evidence-based, low intervention labor management.
  • A great alternative – MMC’s midwives & nurses are a safe alternative to OB/GYN care. We provide a full schedule of labs, ultrasounds and more to help women achieve a more natural birth. When there’s a question, we collaborate with obstetricians for both pregnancy and gynecological care.
  • More versatile than you might think – Our midwives & birth center can support older moms, VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean / c-section) and more. Don’t assume you’re too risky to be supported at MMC by our experts in labor & normal pregnancy. Please visit us at an orientation, check out our Pregnancy page, or just give us a call to learn more.

Mountain Midwifery Center welcomes all family types.

Services offered include:

  • Prenatal care, natural birth, water birth, nutritional counseling and more
  • Wellness exams and care for women of all ages – teens, moms and beyond
  • Educational services such as classes on childbirth, newborn care and breastfeeding
  • Birth control and other GYN services
  • Family Building insemination service in a home-like setting (aka IUI)

How do I begin?

For Wellness Care (gyn) and other services, call 303-788-0600 to schedule an appointment.

For Pregnancy Care:
First, please check the FAQ and examine the list under “Is it right for me?”

Second, come see what Mountain Midwifery Center is all about! Attend an orientation. All first-time prospective pregnancy clients are asked to attend an orientation prior to making the first appointment. At the FREE orientation, you will tour the center and learn about our approach to natural birth, water birth, and midwifery. You’ll have the chance to ask questions and discover if Mountain Midwifery Center is right for you. We do orientations for maternity clients so that your first visit can be about you, not about how MMC works.

Click on the dates below to tell us you will be attending. We do not share your information, and you will not be added to a mailing list. Orientations last for one hour and begin promptly in The Frontier Room.

For families already working with a certified doula, we also support Doula-Assisted Orientations. Your doula can tour the birth center with you to review the features of the birth center. If interested, please email us.

What our patients have to say about us:

MMC teaches women about birth the way it should be and is doing important work in changing the way childbirth is approached in our country. I would recommend them to anyone experiencing a healthy pregnancy.
Zoe R., mother of one

If I could give MMC and their compassionate team ten stars I would. The model of care that I received from orientation to postpartum care has been exceptional and incredibly personal.
Ashley A., new mother

I have now had two children here. I can’t say enough for the amazing staff!
Alicia H., mother of two

I went to MMC for all of my prenatal and postnatal care. Throughout the experience, I was so very pleased with the level of care and level of attention given to patients. Each office visit, I was encouraged to ask as many questions as I had– with my previous OBGYN, I was rushed out and my questions were dismissed. I loved that they never seemed to rush me or be annoyed by my questions.
Sarah S., new mother
