Blind Mother "Sees" Her Children Being Born
June 06, 2019
"With only four senses, I really wanted to experience childbirth as any mother would," Saldivar said.
Like all moms-to-be at Denver Health, Saldivar got to choose the type of birthing experience she wanted to have, from a team of physicians, certified nurse midwives and volunteer doulas. The staff is skilled in providing labor support techniques to ensure that the mother stays relaxed and focused throughout the birthing experience. Certified registered nurse anesthetists are also available for mothers who choose to use an epidural or other medication to manage their pain.
"Denver Health helped me see just how beautiful natural childbirth can be," Saldivar reflected. "They truly understand me and my challenges."
Saldivar now takes both of her boys to Denver Health for their pediatric primary care.
"I wouldn't think of going anywhere else. I can't thank them enough for my two mile high miracles" she said.
