A free standing birth center in the heart of Boulder, CO offering water birth, pregnancy care, labor and birth support, postpartum services, and well woman care.
The Birth Center of Boulder was created for the community. It is a space born out of great passion and inspiration.
We are a free standing center that provides all aspects of maternity, labor, birth, postpartum, and well woman care to healthy ‘low risk’ women. Our birth rooms have large tubs for labor or water birth along with full sized beds and private bathrooms. Our team of Certified Nurse Midwives, Registered Nurses, and office staff are here to support you physically and emotionally on your journey to motherhood. Our clinic and birthing center are designed to provide a comfortable environment for you and your family. The birth center has all the necessary amenities, medications, and appropriate providers to ensure a safe birth.
We are accredited through the Commission for the Accreditation of Birth Centers (CABC) and are a licensed health care facility through the Colorado Department of Health. We are located 2.5 miles (less than 7 minutes) from Boulder Community Health Foothills Campus.
If you want to meet our staff, tour the facility, and learn more about the birth center, come to an orientation. Orientations are held the first Wednesday at noon and third Saturday at ten am every month, please read this information to learn more about us. Call or email to RSVP .
At the Birth Center of Boulder your birth is supported by a certified nurse midwife and a registered nurse. Our practitioners are focused on evidence based care and physiological birth. That translates to knowing the current research on labor and birth, keeping you and your baby safe -and then letting your body do the work it needs to do. This is your birth team.
The cadence of your appointments with us is much like every other practitioner - but what is different is the depth and length of each appointment. We spend more time getting to know you and your family - we want you to feel heard and understood. We know that pregnancy is about growing a baby but it is also about growing a mama. So that might mean extra appointments or a cup of tea with the staff. This is your model of care.
The decision of where to spend your health care dollars is difficult. We can help you navigate your insurance - and whether we are in network or out of network providers we find that often the cost of a birth at a birth center is far less than at a hospital. We are transparent with our financial policies and offer payment plans. This is your financial policy.
