For a detailed look at your Northern Colorado Birth Options
Starting with safe and competent prenatal care, there are many options in northern Colorado. Families can choose from:
- giving birth at home with a skilled and certified midwife
- giving birth at the freestanding birth center in Englewood, CO
- having your baby at one of several hospitals in our area, with a Certified Nurse Midwife, a family practice doctor, or an obstetrician
We urge you to find out the details behind the location you plan to birth, and the statistics of the
Northern Colorado prenatal care provider
you choose. Please be aware that in our country right now, we have an epidemic of cesarean surgeries. At over 32% of all births, the World Health Organization states that we are creating more complications and poor maternal and neonatal outcomes than if the cesarean rate were at a safer 10% of all births. The best way you can keep from being a statistic of an unnecessary cesarean, is to pick a location and provider who oversee many healthy births. Ask questions of your Fort Collins pregnancy care provider, to find out if they are equipped to help you have the healthy birth you want.
