The Family Birth Center hosted a warm and lively Tea Party on Nov. 1 for local midwives, doulas and others who support pregnant moms and new families.

“We have the same goals: healthy babies, happy families and a healthy community,” Family Birth Center director Lisa Allen told the group. “We welcome all patient-chosen care providers, whether you’re a doula or an independent midwife who needs to bring your client to Foothills Hospital for additional support.”

Guests learned the latest news about BCH’s plans to expand maternity services, including the early-2018 launch of a BCH-owned clinic with four certified nurse midwives that will bring regular midwife deliveries back to Foothills Hospital.

Attendees included our wonderful nurses, lactation consultants, and Boulder Women’s Care providers now delivering at Foothills: Drs. Lisa Jamroz, Kerry Shea, Alanna Revoal and Brenda Price along with midwives Paige Swales and Kim Windels. Thanks to Lisa Allen, Margery McSweeney, Sutay Berman and everyone who contributed to this festive and fun event!
