Babies are such a nice way to start people.

About Preparing For Birth

It’s all in the name. From the day you get a positive pregnancy test to your final postpartum visit, I am here for you. My work is to prepare you for your unique home birth and parenting journey.

Tiffany is a midwife who offers holistic compassionate homebirth midwifery care to families in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Fort Carson, Peterson AFB, Schriever AFB, and more.

Tanya is an advanced midwifery student who assists at every birth and offers kind, compassionate doula care.

Midwifery is not just a model of care. It’s a community-focused, family-centered way of being “with woman” during her strongest and most vulnerable time.

“Healthy mom and healthy baby” means far more to me than “everyone survived.” I work hard to equip every family to thrive and become healthy and whole in every way from beginning to end.

My goal is to help you grow into a confident parent, equipped to trust your instincts and make the best decisions for you and your baby every step of the way!

Our Beliefs & Home Birth Philosophy

My birth philosophy reflects the midwifery model of care. It is evident in everything I do at Preparing for Birth.

  • Birth is inherently a normal, natural and healthy life event, not a disease process.
  • Labor, childbirth, and breastfeeding are the usual and expected extension of pregnancy for both the mother and baby.
  • Women and babies are designed for the work of labor, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
  • Women and babies are strong.
  • Labor and childbirth can be transforming and joyful.
  • A mother and baby are a unique pair and deserve individualized, supportive, respectful care free from routine interventions and coercion.
  • Every woman should have the option to choose the birth location and care provider that best suit her philosophy, desires, and risk factors.
  • Women are well capable of making informed decisions surrounding all care for herself and her baby at all times.
  • Birthing women can be confident and equipped for their own journey from pregnancy into motherhood.
  • Women are not just walking incubators. They are human beings in need of physical, psychological, and social care.
  • Babies are not just babies. They are full-fledged humans with rights, feelings, and experiences of birth all their own.
  • Pizzas are delivered. Women give birth.
