Denver Health Recognized for Low C-Section Rate

Consumer Reports has recognized Denver Health Maternity Services for having one of the lowest C-section rates in the country at 7.9%, avoiding unnecessary health risks to both mom and baby that can result from C-sections. The low rate of C-sections can be attributed to Denver Health’s policies, as well as the partnership between OB/GYN physicians and midwives.

When deciding where to deliver your baby, you may take comfort in knowing that Denver Health offers the following:

  • One of the LOWEST C-Section rates in Colorado. We respect the natural process of childbirth and our providers work to support moms through that process. Our physicians skillfully perform Cesarean deliveries, or C-sections, when medically indicated to ensure the best outcomes for mom and baby.
  • We have a high rate of success with vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC).
  • Board Certified OB/GYN physicians and certified nurse midwives are in the hospital, ready to care for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Certified registered nurse anesthetists are dedicated to labor and delivery so moms have access to pain control options.
  • Large, private labor and delivery suites and private baths with whirlpool tubs for water therapy.
  • Lactation (breastfeeding) certified consultants are available for you before and after you deliver.
