Lactation Support | Group Wednesdays at 10:30

Find Out More

I facilitate the breastfeeding support group on Wednesdays at 10:30am at MMC. I have been providing perinatal education and doula services in the Denver metro area since 1998, training labor doulas since 2005, and extended my practice to provide lactation consultation by becoming an IBCLC in 2012. My philosophy is that evidence-based education and non-judgmental support are critical for families as they navigate the changes and challenges of having a new baby.

I teach prenatal breastfeeding classes, facilitate several breastfeeding support groups in the area, and provide lactation consultation for new families. As a mother of six and grandmother of two, my journey has inspired me to empower expectant and new families to begin their journeys with confidence. I provide in-home and office consultation appointments. You can book online on my website or phone for emergent appointments.

Massage & Acupuncture | 1st & 3rd Friday afternoons

Since 1997, my training in prenatal care has encompassed both Acupuncture and Prenatal Massage. My work in Prenatal Acupuncture is especially helpful in relieving nausea and morning sickness, fatigue, anxiety, heartburn, body pains and swelling in hands and feet. For self-care between sessions, I enjoy teaching women gentle exercises and other pearls of wisdom to use at home for better sleep, pain relief and discomfort.

Over the past 18 years, I have had the honor to study with some of the world’s most renowned teachers in Prenatal Acupuncture, labor and delivery, Japanese style Acupuncture and Prenatal/Postpartum Massage.

In 2010, I completed a two year Sport Medicine Acupuncture course at The New England School of Acupuncture in Boston. This unique orthopedic approach deepened my understanding and treatment of various pain conditions including back and joint pain during pregnancy. As an Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist, I find that combining acupuncture with massage works best to gently rebalance muscles, reduce pain and inflammation and keep you comfortable throughout your pregnancy.

I earned my Masters of Science Degree in Acupuncture from the New York College for Holistic Health, Education and Research in December 2001 and became Nationally Board Certified in 2002 (NCCAOM). In 2001 I received my Post Graduate certification in Herbal Medicine at the Kanpo Institute of Medicine in London, England. After returning to New York City, I taught Japanese Acupuncture at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and also served there as an Acupuncture Clinic Supervisor. In 1997 I graduated from The School of Massage Therapy at the New York College and also received my Prenatal/Postpartum Medical Massage Certification.

I am available to see clients at Mountain Midwifery Center and at my office in Centennial.

Christine MacCarroll, NTP

Holistic Nutrition | By Appointment

Find Out More

Hello, I am a holistic nutritional therapist focused on helping women to regain their vitality and feel energized. I am a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals. Over my lifetime journey experiencing and learning about food, I’ve travelled many different paths, from vegetarian to paleo. The constant has been that I was always reading and learning—and I expect to never stop learning. I make it my business to know the latest science. Interestingly, the “latest” has led me to conclude that we really need to go back in time: farm food over factory food, butter over margarine, slow and local over fast and global.

Both of my own lovely girls were born at Mountain Midwifery Center. I came to nutrition after helping my younger daughter overcome a neurological speech disorder (apraxia). After her diagnosis, my “mama bear” instinct went into overdrive. Helping her heal became my main mission in life, and I spent countless hours reading, researching, and desperately reaching for any help I could find. The best hope after all that research seemed to be in nutrition. After adding a nutritional protocol to traditional speech therapy, profound changes took place in her speech. Today, you would never know that she had ever had any difficulties.

But the change had radiated to me. A wildfire had been lit in my belly. So, after years of saying I’d never go back to school, I did just that. It’s now my passion and mission to be a guide for other mothers who just want to feel GOOD and feel like themselves again. We are meant to use food as our first medicine, and a nourished body functions optimally in all aspects—physically, mentally and emotionally. I’d love to join you on your journey to help your body do just that.

Hello all! My name is Jordan, and I am so blessed to be a member of the amazing team of women here at Mountain Midwifery Center. I feel so honored to be invited into your lives during a time of such meaningful and beautiful transition – I simply could not think of a more rewarding way to spend my time.

I have had a passion for tending to pregnant and laboring families for as long as I can remember. After graduating from college with a degree in biology at the University of Denver just up the street from MMC, I went straight into nursing school at the University of Colorado. After 16 stressful yet exciting months, I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing. I spent some time working as an acute care dialysis nurse, and then in a hospital based, high-risk pregnancy clinic before finding my home away from home here at Mountain Midwifery. I am also a certified childbirth educator.

Philosophically, I believe that pregnancy, labor, and birth care should be a collaborative effort in which the most important opinion is that of the client. I want women to feel empowered during this process, and I want them to be educated regarding their own health and wellness and how becoming a mother fits into that picture. I want to provide care that is individualized and specific, respecting the wishes and traditions of each and every family that I work with. As a nurse, it is my goal to facilitate the realization of your birth wishes in a safe, healthy, and supportive environment.

While I love what I do, I also love the life I live outside of work. I live in Aurora with my husband and our two pups. We spend most of our free time with family, as we have 7 siblings between us that are all local. I love to travel – so far my favorite places are London and Paris. I am an obsessive coffee drinker (I was barista before I was a nurse), an avid reader, and I love trying out new recipes in my kitchen. I look forward to getting to know more about you as we move through this journey together!

I really look forward to being a part of your journey. It is an honor to be a part of the Mountain Midwifery team, for I believe with all my heart that they are very special group of people. I find great inspiration in the strength and beauty of the human spirit, especially within women and children. As a Registered Nurse, I have always felt that the best part of being a nurse is being able to provide support and education. It is a thrill to see faces light up with understanding and to watch a solid foundation of knowledge create empowerment and courage. It is truly a blessing to see a family feel empowered and be able to go forward without fear. I am very excited to be able to share the knowledge I have gained in over 10 years of working in Women and Children’s health. I look forward to seeing you in class in the beautiful Frontier Room at Mountain Midwifery Center.

I am a Colorado native, born and raised in Boulder. I enjoy all of the opportunities for outdoor adventures that our state has to offer, but my favorites are; rafting, camping, skiing and hiking. I also love traveling and have been blessed to see many places and spend valuable, life-changing time with people of many different cultures. Other things that “fill my cup” are reading, cooking, sewing, running, gardening, and spending time with friends, and family (including the four-legged, furry kind).

Over the course of 10 weeks, we address general pelvic floor health, diastasis recti, back and neck pain, shoulder and chest tension, knee, hip, and sacral issues, posture, pelvic stability, deep core connection with breath, and most importantly how to bring these lessons into everyday movements like carrying baby, standing, and walking.
