Our Birth Philosophy

We view child birth as a natural event and not a medical emergency. Giving birth is a transformative experience, a journey that calls for expert care & safe assistance during the natural progression of childbirth

Our Mission

Our passion is providing women in our community with every opportunity to experience the birth they desire, whether that’s in the comfort of their own home or a free standing birth center. As the first free standing birth center in Northern Colorado, one of our biggest goals is to educate our clients on their options, while providing the highest level of safe, individualized and empowering care to the women in our community. Each expecting woman and their families deserve to be treated with respect and dignity, while receiving care with Tender Gifts Midwifery. Regardless of the journey you choose, our midwives will be there to support you through wellness care, fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and beyond.

Gynecologists
pregnancy

Tender Gifts Birth Center provides complete prenatal care throughout your pregnancy. Studies have shown that the more you know and trust your midwife, the safer the outcome for mother and baby through Midwifery led care.

Midwives

At your birth you will be supported by licensed Midwives and Registered Nurses who will be by your side every step of the way. At your home or the birth center we will monitor your vital signs, the progress of labor, the baby’s heartbeat and general well being.

consultations

Whether you birth in our center or at home, we provide you with home visits in the first 10 days of life and office visits and phone consultations as needed up to six weeks postpartum. Your midwife is available to you during this period.

newborn

Once baby is born, the family will have time to quietly and privately bond with your baby. Once you are ready your midwife will give the newborn a thorough head-to-toe examination and the weight, measurements and reflexes will be checked.

Happy People Have Happy Births

Birth

“I cannot speak more highly of Tender Gifts Midwifery. As a doula I’ve worked with many care providers in the Northern Colorado area. However, I have now had the privilege of both working with them and having Tender Gifts Midwifery attend my own birth and I can say is they will be the first person we call should we decide to have anymore tiny humans. She respects the power within women, empowers them through the tough spots, and maintains a safe and calm atmosphere. Everyone should have the opportunity to love their birth and this one was by far my favorite.”
