A healthy pregnancy starts with quality maternity care. At BCH, you will
receive expert, comprehensive care and support — before, during
and after childbirth. Our obstetrician and midwife teams offer family
planning, preconception care, prenatal care, labor and delivery and postpartum care.
Low-Risk Pregnancy Care: Our experienced obstetricians and nurse-midwives will help guide you
through a low-risk pregnancy. You’ll see a dedicated care team for
many regular check-ups and diagnostic tests to track your health and your
baby’s growth through pregnancy.
High-Risk Pregnancy Care: Sometimes pregnancies require specialized prenatal care.
Boulder Women's Care obstetricians have the expertise and experience needed for providing a
higher level of medical care during a high-risk pregnancy, as well as
any interventions needed to deliver babies as safely as possible.
We want to help make your pregnancy and the birth of your child everything
you’ve dreamed. Our obstetricians and nurse-midwives will guide
through your options for childbirth — such as options for pain relief,
delivery methods, infant feeding, and newborn care — and help you
create a birth plan that supports your wishes for that special day.

Women who take steps to get healthy before pregnancy are less likely to
have babies that are born premature, have low birthweight or other disabling
conditions. Special care during the time leading up to your pregnancy
can also improve your chances of getting pregnant. Our obstetricians and
midwives can help you optimize your health prior to pregnancy, with the
goal of assisting you in getting pregnant and delivering a healthy baby.
