Each of these recommendations are women that I have personally had the privilege of working alongside. I consider them highly qualified in their specialized fields. They each have such compassionate hearts and believe in serving their clients to the highest level.

EMILY THOMPSON & JENNIFER GREEN
OF ORGANIC HOMEBIRTH
Emily and Jennifer are such a great team! They work so well because they support each other and back each other up. You won't have to fear that your midwife is so overbooked that she can't make it to your birth. These women are wonderful.

OF NURTURED IN JOY
Sarah is such a great doula! She gives kind encouragement throughout labor and gentle hands-on support during contractions. She anticipates needs before you even know you have them. She always has a bag of “tools” to help support your needs. She is great at holding space for you and meeting you where YOU are at in your labor.
Sarah also offers postpartum doula support!
OF AMANDA SMITH BIRTH SERVICES
Amanda is incredibly passionate about the work that she does! She started as a doula and is so committed to helping women through their birthing experience that she is on her way to becoming a midwife! Amanda is great to have at your side, cheering you on through the obstacles to birthing your baby!
Amanda also does placenta encapsulation!
OF THE DOULA CIRCLE
Kristen is incredible. She thinks of everything. She gives such great hands-on support. She teaches prenatal yoga, I suspect not just for the pregnant mamas, but also so that she can withstand long squatting positions and stay flexible enough to contort her body into the myriad of positions needed to support you during your labor!

This is Colorado Springs' first free-standing birth center. They support families through the midwifery model of care. They offer the option of water birth as well as VBACs.

IBCLC (INTERNATIONAL BOARD CERTIFIED LACTATION CONSULTANT) OF WILDFLOWER BREASTFEEDING
Lauren is so caring and kind. She is passionate about supporting women through their breastfeeding journey. She's so knowledgable, educated, and compassionate.
Your placenta will be picked up within 3 hours of delivery (or upon discharge from the hospital), prepared, and then returned to you within 72 hours. Amanda encapsulates using Traditional Chinese Medicine Method, so properly stored placenta capsules can be used during the postpartum period and beyond.
