- For birth, the center provides prenatal care, natural birth, water birth in Aqua Doula tubs, nutritional counseling and more,
- Educational services that complement birth, such as classes on childbirth, newborn care and breastfeeding.
If you're wondering, Mountain Midwifery Center truly is the only birth center in the Denver area.
- Licensing - MMC is the only facility licensed as a birth center. All other licensed facilities calling themselves birth centers are licensed as hospitals.
- Accreditation - MMC is the only facility accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Birth Centers to standards set by the American Association of Birth Centers.
- Freestanding - MMC is the only freestanding, out-of-hospital birth center in the front range.
If you see the words "birth center" at another birth place, please request proof of proper licensing or accreditation, or request they use another name for their facility.
What is a Freestanding Birth Center?
A Birth Center is designed to be a “Maxi-Home” not a “Mini-Hospital.” We strive to allow women to labor and birth in a true home-like environment while providing one-on-one care that helps ensure superior mom and baby outcomes. The Birth Center is not just pretty birth rooms, it is an education-intensive program of care. From your first visit through the birth of your baby and beyond, the Birth Center is designed to facilitate healthy choices for families.
Why Choose Mountain Midwifery Center?
Mountain Midwifery Center believes that pregnancy and birth for most women is a state of health. We trust that your body can grow, birth and breastfeed your baby. The staff provides individualized care and an education plan that includes nutrition, exercise and stress-reduction recommendations. In addition, you have access to an extensive lending library of birth books and videos. You may also browse through our online Resource section and periodically check our Mountain Blog for birth center news and articles regarding pregnancy and natural childbirth.
How do I begin my prenatal care with MMC?
First, please check the FAQ tab and examine the list under "Is it right for me?"
Second - Attend an orientation (REQUIRED). ALL prospective maternity clients must attend an orientation prior to making the first appointment. Come see what Mountain Midwifery Center is all about! 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 is right for you. We do orientations for maternity clients so that your first visit can be about you, not about how MMC works. Orientations last for one hour and begin promptly at the time listed because coming in later disrupts the flow of it. We may, schedule permitting, provide personal tours for mothers transferring to us after 24 weeks gestation. Unfortunately we are unable to take transfers into our care for families greater than 32 weeks in their pregnancy. If you are earlier in pregnancy, we ask that you please come to an orientation. We are always adding more dates, if you don't see one that works for you please check back often. 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. The registration is free and tells us how many people to expect. Orientation is held in our Education space in Suite 500, also known as Blossom Wellness Center (The Midwife’s Garden).
- Sunday September 14, 5:00 pm
- Tuesday September 23, 5:30 pm
- Friday September 26, 5:00 pm

Please check back for more orientation dates.
Thirdly, at the orientation, you will be given a registration packet. If MMC is right for you and your family, you can turn in the registration form at the end of orientation, or if you prefer you can take it with you and return it to us via fax 303-788-0602 or e-mail it to us at Questions@mountainmidwifery.com. We will contact you to set up your first appointment, based on availability. Call Blossom Family Health with any questions 303-954-9399.
