About Mountain Midwifery Center

ACNM-Best-Practice_logo

Mountain Midwifery Center is the oldest birth center in Colorado and still run by original staff members. We are independent – run and supervised by midwives. Independence allows us to design and implement real quality improvement projects. We are also more affordable. For similar services, our facility fees are only approximately one quarter of the cost of basic maternity care in a hospital setting. Our care is nationally recognized as a top performer.

Our administrative staff is a real asset to our center. Our front office and billing staff are very knowledgeable about your care here at MMC, and can even answer basic clinical questions for you.

Meet our midwives below.
