We are CPMs registered to practice in Colorado providing comprehensive homebirth midwifery services to growing families in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas.

We believe in you and your baby, holistic individualized care, informed decision making, shared responsibility between client and midwife, upholding an excellent standard of care, and in the midwifery model of care.

What does midwifery care look like?

We offer the same standard of care you will find in any other environment, but it looks very different. Not only will we check on your physical health, but we also check in with your mental and emotional health. We spend a large portion of your appointments just visiting with you, getting a feel for how you and your family are really doing, and offering help and input for your unique situation.

Helping you troubleshoot anything that concerns you, from mild heartburn to stress management, is another priority. While we are not therapists, we value building a healthy relationship with you and your family, which increases safety for you and your baby in home birth care.

Prenatal Visits: Each in-office visit is approximately one hour. We perform all physical assessments for you and your baby and answer any questions or concerns you have. Be sure to bring a notebook! We also visit your home at 36 – 37 weeks to make sure everything is ready for your home birth.

Labor, Childbirth and Immediate Postpartum: Our birth team arrives sometime during active labor and remains until both mom and baby are stable — around two hours 

or a little longer after birth.  We are there primarily to provide safety, but also to offer support, guidance, and encouragement. In the first couple of hours after baby arrives, we continue clinical care of mother and baby, and assist with breastfeeding. Our team cleans up before leaving, including starting a load of laundry.

Postpartum Visits: There are four to six visits in the six weeks following delivery. We perform a variety of normal clinical checks for both mom and baby at each appointment. The first two occur in your home, with the remaining visits at our office. At these visits, we again make sure that you and your baby are healthy in every way.

We would love to care for you and your family, and look forward to chatting with you soon!
