Midwifery Services During Pregnancy and Childbirth
Midwives provide care based on the philosophy that pregnancy and childbirth are natural, healthy life events. A midwife supports pregnancy, labor and birth with as little intervention as possible. Mothers receive education, encouragement and reassurance during pregnancy and delivery. Denver Health midwives collaborate and consult with obstetricians to make sure all medical needs are met and if an unexpected emergency occurs, physicians are right there to help.
